Had a great flight with Sean on a beautiful sunny day in October! He arranged instructors for me and 5 friends and we all had a brilliant time. Felt in very safe hands and all was done with professionalism and kindness. Highly recommended.

I am so glad I chose Fly Chamonix for my paragliding experience. I was leaving Chamonix and decided to try my luck and see if there were any paragliding openings within the next few hours. Sean said he could squeeze me in if I could leave my hotel within the next five minutes and that he'd even come and pick... More

My wife and I visited the Chamonix area at the end of September/ begining of October 2014. During this visit we had both been watching the paragliders flying around the peaks, for myself this bought back memories of when I used to fly in the late 80s and for my wife memories of a taster day in the UK from...

My first time paragliding, an awesome experience. Sean was patient and professional. On top of that, he talked me out of a more expensive flight since it was my first time and the other was a bit much for a first timer. Highly recommended, honest and professional guys here. Will def come back.

I arrived in Chamonix late in the afternoon and, on a whim, decided to see if I could find anyone to take me flying. I called up and managed to get taken up just 30 minutes after calling. Sean was very professional and friendly, talking me through everything to do with paragliding while also explaining about Chamonix, Mont Blanc and... More

Thank- you to Sean for providing a really friendly and professional service. I agree completely with the other recent reviews and would... More

Fantastic, professional and friendly. Never been paragliding before and was bit nervous but there was no need to be! Everything was well explained throughout the flight and the take-off and landing was no problem; even had a go at the controls.

I was travelling out to Chamonix for 2 weeks for the summer 2014 season and was looking for a school to give paragliding a try. It was something I wanted to do as a hobby, and Chamonix is certainly the place to give it a first go. There are many flying companies in Chamonix, and so I picked Sean's Fly... More

This was my first time paragliding and being a bit of a nervous flyer I was slightly apprehensive about it at first, particularly when taking the cable car up the Aiguille du Midi to the 2300m mark! However, Sean was excellent and made me feel perfectly comfortable and relaxed about the whole experience and we got set up at the... More

Thanks to Sean and Patrick for their professionalism and persistence in making sure we could squeeze in a flight! We weren't blessed with good weather, but the wait was definitely worth it. We couldn't fly Les Grands Montets due to weather, so we'll be back! Really beautiful flight and highly recommended.
