Even though we were extremely unlucky, with poor weather preventing our first flight and then a lightning strike on the cable car system preventing our second, my brother and I had an astonishing "third time lucky flight". Each time the flights were seamlessly rescheduled. Sean and Fred were extremely professional at all times and genuinely good people. The flight was... More

You really really really really really really really have to try this. Really. I think almost anyone could do this, and should. It felt like floating - very calm - unless you want to do tricks, in which case it is even better. Sean and his colleagues were very professional, and tailored the experience to each of us. I can't... More

Flew from Agui Du Midi which was an awesome experience. Was a little scary coming out of the station having never used crampons before but my guide was great. Amazing views coming down.

What a fabulous day we had paragliding with Sean and his friends. Lucky to have a beautiful day with the most spectacular views. All three of us are over 60 and would certainly recommend having a go at this, very gentle take off, not scary at all and so professional that we would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks... More

If you're thinking of a memorable experience or want to go paragliding we highly recommend this company. All arrangements handled professionally and on the day we were comforted by the pilots professionalism. Couldn't have been in 'safer hands'. The 25 min flight really was an amazing way to see Chamonix and the Mont Blanc massif. Highly recommended.

Sean at Fly Chamonix made booking tandem flights an absolute breeze...booked for myself & my son initially, then my extended family wanted to fly too..... Sean was amazing at organising that we could fly in 2 lots of 3, my son went alone afterwards.... A very professional & enjoyable experience.... Thank you Sean!

I was beyond nervous to do this! Sean made me feel as comfortable as possible (for someone who has a fear of heights). He explained the process thoroughly and talked me through each stage. He did what was asked-nothing crazy, but would have tailored the ride to any request. I will be coming back to fly with Sean in the... More

Had seen paragliding thousands of times, but never thought about doing it myself until my wife gave me a tandem flight for my birthday. We went down from l'Aiguille du Midi. It was very impressive, just hanging in the sky without anything -used to airplanes- around me. I felt very safe and in good hands with Sean. Via e-mail he... More

This company (specifically Sean) is awesome. He helped me set up an Aguille du Midi flight (go all the way if you can) on the very last day of the season as a cap to my 10 day TMB hike. He was very responsive, very professional, and gave me all the info I needed. The flight was absolutely incredible. We... More
