Flying over The Great Pyramids of Giza is one of a kind experience. If you are an advance paramotor pilot you will have a unique opportunity to take off and fly nearby all those amazing ancient monuments.
The Giza pyramid complex of ancient monuments includes the three pyramid complexes known as the Great Pyramids, the massive sculpture known as the Great Sphinx, several cemeteries, a workers village and an industrial complex. It is located on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt
The Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.
Luxor has frequently been characterized as the “world’s greatest open-air museum”, as the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnakand Luxor stand within the modern city. Immediately opposite, across the River Nile, lie the monuments, temples and tombs of the west bank Necropolis, which includes the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens.

After 3 years from the 1st event I was back at the Pyramids flying again with great bunch of pilots from the Ozone Team & friends.
As usual Sky Sports Egypt did they absolutely best to pull off another great event! I can’t express enough how great and special were last 10 days spent at Red Sea, Luxor and Pyramids.
If you would like to visit Egypt and fly over those amazing places do no hesitate to join this tour!
Such an amazing trip, being able to see so much from my Paramotor is priceless, the organisation is fantastic and the team is always ready to help you.
I think Galala worth the visit If is available on the next tour, such an amazing place! Luxor is really nice to do small cross country while seeing all the historical sites along the nile, it’s just breathtaking!
And the pyramids are MUST, you have no idea of the size of them until you fly above them.
20 years since last trip to Egypt this time with a paramotor flying the amazing sites of Luxor and the Pyramids. SkySports will go out of their way to make this a trip to remember…thanks to the Team from Denmark
Egypt, December 2021 is one of the best and unforgettable trips to this beautiful country among all the visits I did in 30 years , especially flying paramotor in the amazing Al Galala, Luxor and the historical algeeza pyramids with my friends from Ozone team and the main sponsor Sky Sport Egypt as their organization and hospitality was generous , can’t wait to visit Egypt again !
Thank you Sky Sport Egypt and best of luck .

The best experience of my flying adventures and probably my life! Flying around temples, foot dragging the Nile, seeing Cairo and Luxor from the air and ofcourse getting to see the Pyramids from quite a unique perspective. The team at Sky Sports Egypt made the whole thing so much more enjoyable and were such a great laugh. I can’t recommend this enough to any paramotor pilot.
SKY SPORTS EGYPT
An amazing awe inspiring adventure:
The team at Sky Sport Egypt arranged an all inclusive and organized event. Seamlessly arranging every aspect of travel and accommodations upon arrival to Cairo. This is truly comforting as a solo female traveler. I was retrieved directly from the terminal and escorted through baggage claim and customs to a private car.
A beautiful beachside resort, where I met the rest of Sky Sports Egypt team and graciously welcomed. With mountains to the west providing paragliding opportunities and a subtropical beach, Galala was a destination all to itself.
LUXOR: (Valley of the Kings, Luxor & Karnak temples)
The most beautiful of sights to behold. Less well known to me I was able to fly over the city of Luxor to the temple, fly along the “Avenue of sphinxes” to Karnak (the penultimate foot drag, ever greater than dragging the Nile)
The pièce de résistance of the trip. Flying the spectacularly famous and ancient site of the Pyramids was surreal. And to get special permission to fly at night was truly over the top!
Additions and alternatives:
Sky Sports Egypt arranged a fully packed itinerary to account for any non-flyable times to include:
1. A ropes course in Galala
2. Tourist afternoon in Luxor
3. And a night in Old Cairo (truly another amazing experience)
Any review cannot fully describe the experience, hospitality and generosity of the Sky Sports Egypt crew. Come visit Egypt…fly Egypt 🇪🇬
As soon as I arrived I felt the hospitality and professionalism of the team added with great humour. The team could tell my friend and I were a bit anxious, they worked to loosen us up a little.
As soon as we took off and flew into the sky I must admit…I was scared. But the pilot instructed me to look back at the view of the pyramids. The fear just vanished and I was in awe of the view. This was truly one of the best experiences in my life. I’ve travelled to many places and seen alot of things. This is one of the few things that actually took my breath away!
Thank you! It was worth every penny!
Insane flights in Egypt!!!
Must do for every paramotor Pilot in the world.
Very friendly and organized trip.
Extremely happy! I was able to experience this amazing trip. Loved every minute of it. Flying over the temples and pyramids was surreal. Once in a lifetime experience. Thank you Sky Sports Egypt for hosting such a wonderful trip. Your team and the people from Egypt made it even extra special.
Excellent tríp with excellent people, thanks!!
