Fly Before You Buy

Everyone is different, so to avoid buying the wrong equipment we suggest you resist the urge to buy anything before you have flown solo. During the training course you will have the opportunity to test the Equipment that we sell, while also taking advice from our team of highly experience instructors. This allows you to discover which specific item of equipment is most suitable for you.

Paramotors and ParaTrikes

SkySchool sells Paramotors and ParaTrikes made by Parajet and Fly Products. The Parajet range includes the lightweight Maverick, which is one of the best Paramotor frames on the market. The Fly Products range includes an assortment of different options, from lightweight Paramotors to heavy duty ParaTrikes.

At SkySchool we only use and sell Vittorazi engines as they are the best on the market! The Cosmos 300 is the ideal trike engine, the Moster 185+ is suitable for medium to heavyweight Paramotor pilots weighing between 80kgs and 130kgs and the Atom 80 is suitable for lightweight pilots weighing between 50kgs and 80kgs.

To see the entire range visit the Paramotor Shop and ParaTrike Shop.

Paragliders

SkySchool uses and sells Ozone, BGD and Niviuk Paragliders. All three companies are renowned for their high quality and attention to detail.

We use the Ozone Spark 2 and BGD Magic in the school. We recommend the BGD Magic Motor and Ozone Roadster 3 Paragliders for beginner/intermediate pilots as they are very easy to launch and land, while being extremely stable in flight.

The Roadster 3 has a higher speed range due its semi reflex shark nose technology. The BGD Luna 2 is also a great semi reflex wing suitable for more experienced pilots.

To see the entire range visit the Paraglider Shop.

Accessories

SkySchool uses and sells a variety of Paramotoring and Paragliding Accessories including Microavionics and Nvolo helmets with integrated headsets, Gin reserves, Ozone harnesses and a wide range of other paramotoring accessories.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do beginner Paragliders cost?

In the UK, a basic, beginner, non reflex Paraglider, such as the BGD Magic Motor, costs £3,000 inc VAT. A beginner/intermediate semi reflex wing, such as an Ozone Roadster 3, costs approximately £3,500 inc VAT.

What is the safest Paraglider?

There is no single safest Paraglider on the market. However, there are some Paragliders that are more suitable for beginners and intermediates. At SkySchool, we use the BGD Magic Motor, which is a very easy glider to launch, fly and land. After training most qualified Pilots buy either the BGD Magic Motor, which is a non reflex wing, or the semi reflex Ozone Roadster 3, which is a faster and more dynamic glider. With its shark nose profile it is very easy to launch, even in nil wind, and the semi reflex system allows for a good speed range while making it very solid in flight.

What is the safest Paramotor?

There is no single safest Paramotor on the market as all Paramotors are inherently unsafe when handled incorrectly due to the spinning propeller. However, some Paramotors, such as the Parajet Maverick, are safer than others due to their light but robust titanium frame. The key thing to remember is to never ever start the Paramotor on the ground and instead always start it on your back, as 70% of accidents take place when running the Paramotor on the ground.

Why are Paramotors so expensive?

Paramotoring is still in its infancy as a sport with only a few thousand Pilots flying them in the UK, which means there is not a mass market for the sport. Also a lot of money is spent on developing the correct engines, component parts, wings and accessories, with the majority of the money put back into R&D.

Do I need to buy Equipment before coming on a course?

You do not need to buy equipment before coming on a SkySchool Course. We provide all equipment as part of the course fee. This allows us to open up this fantastic sport to more people as opposed to only those who can afford to buy equipment first. It also allows people to 'Fly before they Buy'!

How much does a Paramotor cost?

At SkySchool, we only use and sell Parajet Paramotors, fitted with Vittorazi engines, as we believe they are the best in the world. These cost between £6,000 and £7,000 inc VAT depending upon the type of Paramotor, Engine and Accessories.

What clothing do I need for Paramotoring?

We recommend that you bring ankle supporting boots and clothes suitable for being outdoors. It can also be cold when flying, even in hot countries, so bring trousers, a jacket and some lightweight gloves.

Testimonials

After I qualified I was looking around for my flying gear & motor but it is very confusing as a novice and not really knowing what I needed. So I asked skyschool to help and they pointed me in the right direction, I would definitely recommend you do this.

Alex Ledger has been on the ball and efficiently communicative at all points and I can't thank him enough for doing exactly what he said he was going to do. First class service.

The price which I managed to get for the engine and wing were so competitive. I was also lucky enough that they had the engine and harness in stock. I went to the flying field to collect the engine and was so pleased to meet Alex Ledger who personally showed me how to assemble the engine, while giving me useful advice, hints and tips on operating it.
