Managed by Sandie Cochepain (world paragliding champion), Technical director Yohan Esteve and Cyrilde Pinard (French Speedriding champion). Les Ailes du Mont-Blanc paragliding school is a team of passionate pilots and instructors, who love to share their passion for free flight with students and passengers alike. The team will take you on a journey in the world of free flying. From spectacular tandem flights around the Chamonix valley, teaching you to take your first solo flights through to cross country flying and high mountain “para-alpanisme”, such as from Mt. Blanc itself. In the winter the team can take you speedriding, a new sport for good skiers combining the sensations of freeride skiing with free flying using mini wings.

I went for a paragliding course knowing already that Chamonix is a mecca for flying, a friend recommended me the school saying "great gear, great people", but the experience was beyond any expectations. Yohan and Richard didn't just taught me how to fly, they made sure I was safe and having fun on every step of the course. They are... More

Staff really did everything they could to make the trip as enjoyable as possible such as advising to change the date for a day with less clouds to make the most of the spectacular landscape and modifying the flight path to accommodate dizziness/fear/motion sickness. PLUS the option to use a GoPro to... More

A wonderful company committed to safety and fun, good with nervous newbies like me and you'll definitely have a great time! The flight was beautiful, and once up in the air far less scary than expected. Absolutely would recommend les Ailes to anyone looking to 'do the jump' in Chamonix and absolutely worth the money. Also, I had a camera,... More
