A totally amazing experience, Sean instilled absolute confidence from the outset. the flight was very gentle at first, very relaxing, and a brilliant way to see the Chamonix valley from a new angle! Taking off from the piste at Brevent was very easy and drama free, the flight was half an hour of pure joy, and there were some aerobatics... More

Yesterday my Mum and I took a flight each with Fly Chamonix. It was a pretty special experience to share it with her, especially as last year she was diagnosed with cancer and told she potentially had little time (she's choosing not to take that on board clearly!). I suggested it to her and immediately said yes despite being scared... More

Sean made us feel really comfortable and safe the entire time. It was an incredible experience and I highly suggest it. The mountain views in Chamonix are breathtaking already but this shows you a spectacular view like you cannot get on land. My girlfriend and I both got to go in the air at the same time and watch each... More

Sean was really nice! As it was the first time I've done paragliding I was afraid! But he was very patient, explained me exactly what to do! The view was amazing! It was a marvelous experience! Worth doing!

AMAZING!! This was an absolutely unforgettably awesome experience, good price and you literally get to sit and enjoy the view! Sean was fabulous, he went above and beyond our expectations, particularly, he did his best to think of options (alternate dates, locations etc) in case the weather wouldn't be in our favour (we went in Feb). Luckily for us the... More

One word is all that needs to be used to describe this experience = WOW! When I found out that you could do paragliding in Chamonix I was all over it! Mind you if you are going to do it, do it right from Mont Blanc, the cost isn't the cheapest but the experience is amazing! You are in the... More

Really enjoyed my flight and lived to tell the tale; and a great tale to tell too! I felt very confident and comfortable. Everything was very smooth and relaxed which, for a reasonably nerve-racking activity, made it all the more enjoyable! Would definitely recommend.

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.
