Paramotor Training

A very warm welcome to life’s next great adventure!


Welcome to YNOT FLY Paramotor School. We are regarded as one of the best flight schools to get qualified to fly paramotor type aircraft (foot launch and trike). The school is proud to say that we are focused on safety and have been successfully training people to fly paramotors for many years.

Ground handling the wing

The greatest indicator of success in paramotoring is how well you can handle the paraglider. There is a wealth of skill that's fun to acquire in its own right, let alone how much it will improve your launch success.

Basic pilots license course

You are required to have a minimum of 35 flights and 4 hours flight time under instruction. You also need to write and pass open book basic licence theory tests.


Requirements to complete your license:

  • Theory and exams
  • Restricted radio operators license
  • Ground handling wing
  • PPG motor competency    
  • In-flight manoeuvers

Special training trips

We can arrange training in other areas of the country away from YNOT FLY Paramotor school's home base.

  1. Coastal training - Basic pilots license can be completed in 7 to 10 days, as we can train for longer during the day. The reason for this is the onshore wind is calm and turbulence free.
  2. Inland training - Due to turbulence during the day, flying is limited to early mornings and late afternoons. Therefore it will take a little longer to complete the course.

Choosing an instructor
