About

SkySchool is run by a group of highly experienced instructors who have learned these sports from the ground up and are passionate about flying. SkySchool originated in 2002 as the official Parajet training school running Paramotor Training courses in Wiltshire and Cyprus. Alex Ledger started managing the company in 2005 and relocated the school to Spain in 2006. In 2016 SkySchool moved to Italy, where we now operate in the Spring and Autumn, while continuing to provide training in Wiltshire during the Summer. In 2016 we set up SkySchool Oman, our first franchise, followed by SkySchool India in 2017. SkySchool has become the world's leading Paramotor Training school and a unique Adventure Sports brand that continues to expand around the world. For further information on the SkySchool Franchise model and how we may be able to help you contact us.
