SkySchool UK

SkySchool runs the following courses near Mere, Wiltshire in July and Banbury, Oxfordshire in August:

  • Taster Courses: 1 or 2 days (Enjoy an action packed weekend)
  • Beginner Course: 6 days (Gets most people flying at least once)

We do not run 6 day Intermediate courses in the UK as the weather is not consistent enough. We strongly recommend those looking to attain the full APPI PPG Pilot license to complete their Intermediate course in Italy or the UAE.
