Paramotors are extremely versatile and can be used for a variety of practical purposes, especially when it comes to Expeditions and Adventures. SkySchool's first expedition was in 2007 with the Scientific Exploration Society during which Dean Eldridge flew over the Bolivian rain forest in search of a remote meteorite crater. His aerial support allowed the ground team to navigate their way through the thick undergrowth all the way to the crater while Dean triangulated radio messages back to Base Camp.
In 2009 SkySchool MD Alex Ledger was part of the Skycar Expedition and instructed Neil Laughton at the airfield in Spain during the car's first ever flight. In 2014 we ran the Flying for Heroes expedition in Kenya, prior to which we taught a group of Wounded, Injured and Sick Military Personnel how to fly ParaTrikes in Spain. Paramotors are also useful aerial recce tools and as a passionate Military Historian Alex has run several Battlefield Tours over the WW1 and WW2 Battlefields in France.
In 2015 The Adventurists approached SkySchool to help run the inaugural Icarus Trophy, a 1000km Paramotor Race from Seattle to Sacramento. We taught a group of complete beginners how to fly for the event and also acted as the Race Committee. In July 2016 Alex led a team of pilots, including double amputee Cayle Royce, on the record breaking 1200km JOGLE Expedition from John O'Groats to Lands End. We continue to plan other exciting Adventures and love hearing from like-minded adventurers, so if you think we can help contact us.
