You’re ready to start your journey into paramotoring, but still can’t find anybody offering paramotor training near you? I’ve got you covered with this list of the top paramotor training schools and instructors in the UK and US.

This list has been created with lots of research into each school, to ensure you’ll be receiving quality and safe instruction.

There may be other schools available, but if they’ve had bad feedback or poor reviews, they won’t make this list. I don’t believe beginners should have to worry about the quality of training they’re going to receive. That’s why this list only contains the best! I believe that pilots should receive the best possible instruction, in the best of locations, it’s their life that’s on the line after all.

If I’ve missed any schools that you think need to be on this list, please let me know! I’ll research the school, ask questions on forums, and if they’re worthy of this list a link will be added.

Click your state on the map below to see training schools and instructors in your area. Links to each of the schools websites are under the map if they’re available. Bare in mind that some states have more than one school so hover over the whole state to see different training schools.

      Hi Ryan, nice website! I’ve added your school to the list, if you send me your exact location I will add it to the map at the top.

  5. Very good post. I absolutely love this site.
    Stick with it!

  6. Hi Darrell,

    I’ve found your list very helpful so far, especially since it has been updated so recently (March 31, 2019, current date is May 24, 2019). I wanted to let you know that apparently Blue Sky PPG has a training facility in northern California (https://www.blueskyppg.com/) which may be worth mentioning. Also, just curious if you had any recommendation on training schools in the northern California/Bay area — am seriously considering getting in to the sport myself. Thanks.

  7. We (Almost Heaven PPG) are interested in being added to your list in the US. We are located in Ona, WV. Please advise as to the process to be added.
    Thank you
