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

3 of us went with Sean, David & Olivier recently on the flight down from Brevent. What an amazing experience, I was abit nervy about the take-off. But after a few steps of run, My nerves are calmed down by the view and the flight itself, it's really the purest way of flying to me. Just relax and enjoy the... More

Saw the paragliding when we were skiing in Chamonix. Saw it, had to try it! It was an amazing experience, Sean was really re-assuring and confidence-building. He made the whole experience seem straightforward and simple, even running in the snow to take off. Once airborne it was an amazing experience, Sean explained all about the thermals and lift and we... More

Sean was incredibly accommodating and very professional! Due to some super windy days we had to be flexible but it was worth every minute of waiting for a perfect safe flight! Spectacular and unique view point of the Chamonix valley, the mountains, glaciers and I felt completely safe with Sean! I highly recommend Fly Chamonix and am already trying to... More

Bought a tandem flight for my wife for Christmas and what an experience. She loved every minute, superb views, a real adrenalin rush but felt really safe all the way. Sean is so professional and has let us have some amazing pictures. Would recommend to anyone. An experience of a lifetime!

I went paragliding with Sean as he had come highly recommended from some local friends, not highly recommended enough in my view! I absolutely loved the experience, I have a disability meaning it's harder to find things I can do round Chamonix but Sean completely accommodated this and I had no problems at all. I can't explain how good the... More

My wife went paragliding with Fly Chamonix and here are her thoughts: I went paragliding with Sean in October this year for my birthday and it was amazing. It is something that I think everyone should experience. Not only was the flight awesome but Sean is extremely helpful. We had to postpone for a day due to bad weather but... More

Sitting on the balcony a few days before arriving at Chamonix watching the paragliders (Zermatt) we booked and flew there... which was amazing.... as soon as we realised we could also fly in Chamonix we had to go again. We were lucky enough to fly from Aiguille du Midi, an exhilarating approach to say the least! Crampons, ridge walking and... More

I ended my fabulous two-week vacation in the alps with a tandem Para glide flight in Chmopnix France with Sean - and I could not have asked for a better way to say farewell to my amazing holiday. I was a little nervous at the top of the mountain, but Sean's confidence and years of experience quickly changed my attitude... More
