Sean was very responsive and organized. Allowed us to borrow any equipment we needed and was helpful throughout the whole experience. Unfortunately, weather on our day to paraglide was not ideal. We spent about 3 hours on the mountain trying to paraglide. Sean and Fred were relentless and patient, trying to get us in the air, even canceling the reservation... More

My wife and I booked with Sean and Olivier, and loved every bit of the experience. They were both professional as far as safety is concerned, and also focused on making sure we enjoyed the experience to the fullest. Highly recommend Fly Chamonix.

We were a group of 5 first-timers, each more nervous than the next. Fly Chamonix turned out to be a very trustworthy group of experienced pilots who put us at ease. The whole process at the top of the mountain went rather quickly (as an American I guess I expected a whole safety and instruction talk...but we were strapped in... More

Thanks very much for the review & the feedback. I will have a quiet word with the pilot who could have given a more complete or perhaps more re-assuring pre flight briefing. More

Fantastic (first ever) flights over Chamonix; stunning views and felt safe and well looked after for the whole flight. Believe Sean when he tells you that you feel far more secure than in a cable car! Loved the experience and will be going back again - and using Sean again - next year...

Sean quickly gauged my appetite for adventure and made the flying experience one that I will not forget. Such a lovely man and I felt completely safe during the crazy turns. I told him about the fact that we were not allowed to attempt the MB summit - so he helped me to take amazing pictures in the air with... More

Me, my dad and sister booked with Fly-Chamonix after recommendation. I was very apprehensive and a bit nervous. We watched paragliders go off Brevent to get a feel for it but our jump ended up being very different to this. The next day we met Sean and his polits and headed to Grands Motets. This was just so much more... More

I flew with Sean who was exceptionally friendly and professional. I felt that his calm manner allowed me to really relax and enjoy the paragliding session. I asked a lot of questions that Sean was more than happy to answer, despite probably being asked the same thing many times before. A great experience.

Incredible scenery for paragliding and a great company to do it with, myself and my girlfriend went with Sean and his partner and they were both brilliant! It's up to you whether you have a nice gentle trip down or a slightly more exciting journey! Highly recommend using these guys!

Hi Sean & the team Thank you so much for an amazing day we've not stopped talking about it all day. Memories that will last forever between us all. Thank you to you and the team you made our day.
