Flight Training

Not looking for a formal flight school? Excited by the flying but dreading everything that comes with it? We know how you feel.

Here at Pilot’s Paradise we think training shouldn’t be a chore, but an adventure. That’s why we’re based in the best flying destination in the world: Florida.

Why sit through boring group lectures, or hear the same information you’ve heard a thousand times, when our world-class instructors are personalised to you and flexible to your schedule, so you can get the hours building you need and the qualifications you want at a pace that’s right for you. With no approach or landing fees in the US, and no visa requirements, training has never been more convenient.

And after a day working towards your goal? Take it easy by the beach with fantastic food, play a few rounds of golf, go shopping in the malls or even visit Disneyland. You could even bring your family, and let them have the time of their lives whilst you get the training you want, the way you want it.
