Paramotoring Taster Courses

Paragliding in Wiltshire with SkySchool UKSkySchool runs 1 and 2 Day Paramotoring Taster Courses in Mere, Wiltshire. These Paramotor Courses follow the first two days of the APPI PPG syllabus, which can be seen below. They are designed for complete beginners who wish to experience the sport of Paramotoring. They offer a good insight into the sport and allow students to learn the basic skills required to fly. During the Paramotor Taster Course, the aim is to get the student off the ground while flying a Paramotor, either undertow or from a hill. If the weather allows, we can complete a tandem flight.
