“I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about joining the Paragon Network in the beginning. Coming from a large chain of FBOs and having leveraging capabilities, I was a little uncertain of what to expect. However, after attending my first Leadership Meeting and getting to know many of the other owners and managers in the group, I quickly realized how beneficial this membership was going to be for me and our FBO. The advantages of this network enable us to work with our Network FBO partners and gain that leverage again! The willingness to share information and help each other out along with the combined knowledge and expertise in this group is very impressive. Paragon Aviation Group has developed tools for the members that we couldn’t get on our own. The experience in this network has greatly exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend joining the Paragon Network to any FBO who is looking to increase business and expand their resources cost effectively.”

“Being a Paragon Member means that our FBO maintains a higher standard than others in the industry. There is no comparison between Paragon Aviation Group and other independent FBO organizations. Paragon does more for their members than any of the others do for theirs. The exclusivity of being a Paragon Member adds tremendous value to our FBO.
