Travel, Transport & Insurance

Lisbon Airport is a 75 minute drive from Ferrel and is very well serviced by most UK and European airports at reasonable prices. We recommend students hire a car in order to not only make your travel from the airport to Ferrel very easy but also to give you more freedom to explore the region when not training. We will connect students together on a WhatsApp group a month or so before the course allowing you to discuss the potential of sharing hire cars. If you don't drive or can't share a hire a car there is a good bus service from Lisboa Sete Rios to Peniché, where we can collect you. We require students sitting a course in Portugal to have their own insurance cover. Sports Cover Direct provide Paramotoring Travel Insurance.

During the day 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.

I highly recommend Sky School and happy to help with unbiased information Tavvy Rodriguez -
After having a good look around for reliable, safe and profesional PPG schools I picked Sky School quite simply from a quick-no nonsense reply I got from Alex Ledger and his crew. I was one of students affected by Covid restrictions but when they found the right window (not easy with different restrictions in different countries ) they quickly set up shop in Bornos, Spain and off we went. Ricardo Maciel, Alex Ledger and his team were exactly what I was looking for and all my expectations were fulfilled. Top class instructing ( even after a long heavy and Covid draining season) , all material was excepcional and safety was top of their list. I highly recommend Sky School and happy to help with unbiased information if you are in the same situation I was prior to enrolling with with them. Safe Flying!

If anyone is thinking of getting involved, I recommend Skyschool. Peter Trot -
Firstly, the instructors are great. They teach at a level for every individual. I have travelled from France, through Spain and now Portugal with the school. The flying has been amazing and the views from above are breathtaking. If anyone is thinking of getting involved, I recommend Skyschool.

Had a fantastic time with SkySchool on courses in Italy and Spain Lucas -
The instructors are very professional, but at the same time approachable and understanding. I completed the first part of my PPG Pilot course in Italy - by the time I was doing my first solo flight, I felt confident and perhaps even overtrained! Highly recommended, I'll be going back for further training with SkySchool this year in May.

Had a fantastic week and made a lot of great memories Matt -
Spent a week in Italy in 2018 on their 'beginner' course after wondering if paramotoring was for me, had a fantastic week and made a lot of great memories. So much so I'm now booked onto the second week this year!
