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.

My wife & I had never paraglid (?!) before. I was particularly nervous as the idea of floating 1000m in the air with nothing but a sheet of fabric, some nylon cord and the skill of a stranger to keep me up there was pretty frightening. How wrong could I be?! Sean & Patrick made the whole experience absolutely marvellous,... More

I booked a tandem flight for myself and my wife and I was nervous initially. However Sean and Patrick were totally professional and put me at ease very quickly. An incredible experience that I will be repeating. I recommend Sean very highly indeed.

Fantastic experience, highly recommended! Sean was very professional and friendly. Everything was smooth, and I really felt safe. Also, he explained how paraglider works, and even allowed me to try controlling it myself for a few seconds. Unforgettable experience, really worth trying.

When our son (11) said he wanted to do this, we thought there was no way they would let a kid do it. We were very wrong. They were awesome guides, three of four kids got to do it (youngest was still recovering from two sets of stitches in two countries, we weren't taking any chances with him). Everyone went... More

Cannot recommend this any more highly. Sean was truly wonderful from the excellent and easy booking via email, always kept me informed prior to the day and on the day made it very relaxed. The flight was excellent, super smooth and an amazing experience. Book with Fly Chamonix and Sean right now!

This was my first experience paragliding and it was fantastic! Flew with Sean, and he was so friendly and explained everything really clearly, pointed out the points of interest as we flew over the valley and even did some acrobatics too! Would definitely recommend it and can't wait to do it again!

Totally amazing experience worth every cent. Launched from Plan du L'Aiguille on a beautiful sunny morning. Takeoff was so quick and easy and Sean explained everything clearly. The view was awesome, the ride peaceful, serene and very comfortable. We did some acrobatics which I loved, but Sean was sure to ask first if I was ok with it. Correspondence with... More

This was my first experience of paragliding. The weather had been mixed over recent days and I feared we wouldn't be able to fly, but Sean spotted a brief weather window and conditions were superb! Patrick guided me down the midi arete and I flew with Sean. Their expertise and experience is second to none. They're both also great fun!... More
