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

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

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.

Great practical course backed up by a fantastic online training course which I will be referring back to for years to come! Both Alex and Zeb are first class instructors with the patience of saints.
