Paramotoring Update this Christmas 2019!

It’s always nice to look back and reflect on the year that has passed and what an action-packed year it has been! It’s also Alex Ledger’s 15th year of running SkySchool and to celebrate this landmark he recently released this film of his Top Five Flying Trips.


In 2019 we ran the most number of courses and taught the most number of students ever. The year started with some Winter courses in the UAE, followed by Spain and Italy during the Spring months, then Wiltshire and Oxfordshire over the Summer, before returning back to Italy and Spain during the Autumn, and in between each relocation, we ran some really enjoyable SkyWeek Trips. Throughout the year we’ve made a considerable effort to document what we get up to in the school, while also sharing some of our Top Tips and generally promoting these amazing sports which we love so much. We hope you enjoy the content we release on the SkySchool YouTube channel. If so please subscribe so you can receive more SkySchool films in 2020, the next one of which will be about SkyWeek Italy.


We are currently in the UAE, back where we started at the beginning of the year. SkySchool UAE is now a stand-alone franchise, with Ed Robinson as MD and Ricardo Maciel as CFI. The last course of the year ends just before Christmas after which we are all taking a well-earned break for the whole of January. We then kick off the New Year by running the following courses in the UAE throughout February and March:

Ras Al Khaimah, UAE:

  • 1. 30th Jan - 6th Feb
  • 2. 6th - 13th Feb
  • 3. 13th - 20th Feb
  • 4. 20th - 27th Feb
  • 5. 27th Feb - 5th March
  • 6. 5th - 13th March

Slots are still available so if you are keen to escape the European winter for some flying in the desert email Ed on [email protected]

SkySchool’s 2020 European Schedule

We’ve already taken an unprecedented number of bookings for 2020, which may have something to do with people’s apparent increased appetite for Adventure Sports. That’s if you believe what the papers say nowadays! Either way, we are seeing more and more people ignoring the trials and tribulations of Brexit, General Elections and other mundane aspects of life and learning how to fly. With that in mind slots are already starting to fill up on our Courses and SkyWeeks in 2020, so don’t leave it too late.
