SkySchool MD Alex Ledger is an avid Military Historian and enjoys nothing more than using his Paramotor to visit and explore various battlefields. In 2010 he flew from Omaha Beach to Utah Beach in Normandy and in 2011 he flew along the Somme Battlefields. Both flights were truly epic and gave him a completely unique perspective of these historic locations. We now offer a similar experience to fellow Paramotor pilots by running Battlefield Tours to the D-Day Beaches and the Somme Battlefields in France. The aim is to fly over as many sites as possible, weather permitting, and if not visit them by foot. View the videos of Alex's trip to The Somme in 2011 and the D-Day Trip in 2013. For further information about these trips please contact us.
