  • FURTHER INFORMATION

    The UK courses start at 09:00 on Saturday and end in the late afternoon/early evening depending upon the weather. The meeting point is outside the cafe at the Skydiving Centre. The courses follow the APPI PPG and APPI ParaTrike training syllabuses.

    During the day please bring appropriate footwear (ankle supporting boots are recommended), water, food, suncream and suitable outdoor clothing, including a jacket and trousers as it can get cold while flying. The nearest train station is Banbury, which is an affordable 15 minute taxi journey. In the UK we have the NHS so we do not require UK based students to take out insurance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What time of the year do the Paramotoring and ParaTriking Courses run in the UK and why?

We run Paramotor Courses in the UK in June, July and August when the weather is usually at its best and most consistent.

Which are the nearest Train stations to the UK Paramotor Training site?

The nearest train stations to the UK Paramotor Training site are Kings Sutton and Banbury, which is an hour’s journey from Marylebone, London. From there, you can take a 20 minute taxi to Hinton Airfield.

All Training days stay in credit for up to 2 years to be used at a later date. At the end of the Course, the SkySchool Team will confirm how many days you have in credit with us.

What are the benefits of Paramotor or ParaTrike Training in the UK vs Overseas?

The only benefit of training in the UK is that you do not have to travel as far, especially for those who live locally, as this saves them the cost of Travel and Accommodation. The UK is a great place to learn the basics, meet the SkySchool Team and make the most of the weather when it allows us to fly! However, the UK climate can never be relied upon to provide consistent weather, hence why we suggest you sit the Intermediate course in Portugal or Spain.

Is Accommodation included in the Course fee in the UK?

Accommodation is not included in the Course fee in the UK. There is the option to camp or to bring a campervan to Hinton Airfield, which has some basic facilities including bathrooms and a kitchen. Alternatively, you can stay off site in a wide range B&B’s or hotels that can be found on AirBnB and Booking.com

How many flights can I expect to do on a Beginner Paramotoring or ParaTriking Course in the UK?

The number of Flights you can expect to do on a Beginner Course in the UK is 1 solo flight.

When do the Paramotor and ParaTrike Courses start and finish in the UK?

All UK Paramotor and ParaTrike Courses start at 9am on a Saturday. At the start of the course we end around 17:00 however when it is flyable we tend to meet earlier and finish later to take advantage of the best flying conditions. The Taster Courses only run over weekends and run from 9am to 5pm. Friday is the Team's day off.

This was an amazing experience! I have always wanted to fly a Paramotor and the team from SkySchool UK made this possible. They make the training fun, enjoyable and easy to understand.

I know I was probably one of the more challenging customers but my true gratitude goes out to Zeb and Ricardo who never gave up on me and went that extra mile to see me through.
