After contact Sky School Alex offered to help me achieve this challenge by offering a reduced cost towards a 2 week course in Fly Zone Fermo Italy . My first worry was what if I hurt myself… Now I’ve been there and don’t it there really is no need to worry about injury even with a medical history like mine!
Going to Italy to learn how to fly I have to say sounds a little elaborate, but it really is the cheapest and quickest way to learn unless maybe you live right next to a sky school in the UK. The weather here is not reliable enough to learn to a set time scale. I can not recommend highly enough for others wanting to learn going through Sky School some of there instructors are knowing in the paramotoring world to some of the most experienced pilots and instructors in the world. Trust me, when you go up for the first time, knowing they will be right there with you (well in your headset) is very reassuring.
