This was a sensational way to see the mountains and valley from a different perspective. Sean was amazing and I felt completely confident and safe. Sean even suggested we defer the flight for one day and wait for the weather to improve which I'm glad we did. Our day was spectacular. Great communication via the net and prior to the... More

It was my first paraglide experience and it was awesome. the scenery superb, the weather was kind but what really made it enjoyable was Sean's experience. He made me feel very comfortable throughout our flight, checking I was fine and generally making me feel completely at ease. it was not an adrenaline rush, it was a relaxing experience from start...

We had a great experience! My mom purchased a "gift certificate" for my husband as a birthday present and we were able to wait to schedule the exact date/time. Sean is very flexible and extremely responsive via email. Semi last minute I decided to fly at the same time, and Sean was able to accommodate. He and Davi (spelling?) were... More

I had a fantastic first paragliding experience with Sean. I texted him the day before and he promptly replied with his availability, with a follow up email with lots of information later in the day. When I met him for the flight from Brevent/Plan Praz, he advised that he wasn't happy with the safety of that location given the prevailing... More

My husband and I and our two girls (15 and 6) all went paragliding with Fly Chamonix last week. It was really easy to book it via e-mail, and Sean and his team were great with all of us - as it was our first time paragliding. We all found it to be amazing and not scary at all. The... More

Or so my daughter declared after her first parapente with Sean today! It has been her ambition to do this since watching the swirls of colours last year at Brevant and we decided to treat her to an early 11th birthday present. The best bit was being able to parapente alongside her too with David as my pilot. We flew... More

I had long wanted to have a go at tandem paragliding and my partner had said that the one place I should do it should be the Chamonix valley as there is no better views in the world – she was right. Sean and Fly Chamonix were perfect from the outset and answered inquiry e mails almost immediately setting up... More
