Sean and Fly Chamonix were fantastic from the initial reply to our enquiry. We were unable to fly on the date we booked due to bad weather and were kept up to date with all the weather information and had another flight booked that fit in our schedule.

We had such a blast paragliding in Chamonix with Fly Chamonix. My husband was a little nervous about it beforehand, but the pilots Sean and Fred put us both at ease, made us feel safe, and gave us each fantastic and customized flights down. I would do it again in a second!

Sean and Fred took our two teenagers flying for the first time. They were Simply top notch and we couldn't rate them any higher. V calm and reassuring and great with the kids and my wife - who was a bit nervous at the thought of watching her kids run off the mountain!! The rest of the extended family met... More

The best experience of our holiday, Sean and the 2 Fred's were awesome and made it so easy for us, we are all over 60 but it is no problem. Flying it yourself is just so much fun, got to get one! Thanks Sean
