We did it today!! It was absolutely amazing!! My sister was terrified but the instructor was very patient and calm. She knew she wouldn't be able to run for take off, so two other instructors helped moving her forward (her legs were shaking haha). And for those who are looking for female instructors, we requested two, although Caroline is the... More

Our family (Dad, 12 year old daughter, 15 year old son) flew from Plan Praz. An amazing experience we all had a blast. The pilots were great and ensured we were safe and had fun. I would highly recommend this family run business. The pilots all spoke good English.

Dear people, I have been flying above Chamonix today. This is one of those things you need to do in your life. You don't have to be afraid, just listen what your pilot has to say and relax. I don't really know what to say. It's so amazing. The view, the feeling, everything.. I really, really recommend this to anyone.... More

This was my first paragliding flight. Lionel was my pilot, but Caroline was flying together with us as well. Great experience, great people, very friendly and professional at the same time.

This flight with Lionel, Caroline, Eddy and the team was amazing! These people know every corner of the valley by heart, and allow you to live the flight the way you want to. Thanks for this magical moment and for allowing me to enjoy every second of this flight! I recommend these guys to everyone!! Locals know better!

My husband and I decided to fly down on an impulse after doing a route on the Brevent and meeting Lionel on the gondola. What a wonderful experience! Lionel and Eddie are wonderful fliers and made it seem so easy. Smooth take off, cruised up to 3600 m and back down for an easy landing. Eddie was great fun and... More

As soon as I met Lionel I knew he was the man for jumping off a mountain with. He was quiet, yet capable and made the whole thing very fuss free. I immediately felt it was going to be all ok and my nerves quickly disappeared . The weather was not great on our initial flight time and we waited... More

My husband (73 yrs old) and I (younger!) wanted to have a paragliding experience on our trip to France from the USA. Caroline and Lionel spoke good English and gave clear, encouraging directions. It was very smooth and we felt that we were in very competent hands. Beautiful views!!! Great memory, great value, great to have met Lionel and Caroline.
