Dogtag Travel Insurance with SkySchoolAlthough Paramotoring is the safest form of powered flight, we still require students sitting a course in Italy to have their own specialist travel insurance. We recommend Dogtag, who are experts in insuring adventurous people, and offer a discount for SkySchool clients. SkySchool's courses in Italy take place on a large airfield on the Adriatic Coast in Eastern Italy. The nearest airports are Ancona and Pescara which are well serviced by Ryan Air at cheap prices. We recommend students hire a car for the duration of their stay however there is also a train service from which stops at Porto Sant'Elpidio. SkySchool organises accommodation 10 minutes from the airfield on a Holiday Park called Villaggio Le Mimose which has a good restaurant and bar. This is not only very convenient but also highly benficial as you learn much more while making friends with everyone else on the course. A single room in a self catered, shared bungalow costs €50 per person per night. Courses start at 09.00 on Monday morning and end on Saturday afternoon. Students should aim to arrive and depart on a Sunday. If necessary we can arrange an airport collection or link people together to share a hire car. Please bring appropriate footwear (ankle supporting boots are recommended), water, food, suncream and suitable clothing for the time of year, including a jacket and trousers as it can get cold while flying.
