Having just completed the TMB with a team of friends I wanted something exciting to do in order to celebrate. Fly Chamonix arranged for all 6 of us to be in the air together which made the experience very special. Sean was a pleasure to deal with as well. :)

Sent our two kids up with Sean and fellow pilot David, who were very friendly and explained how everything worked. Kids thoroughly enjoyed the experience, especially when they got to steer the paraglider. Definitely worth giving it a go!
Highly recommend using Fly Chamonix.

Hands down one of my favorite activities I have paid for in my lifetime! My 17 year old daughter and I reserved the flight from Plan de l'Aguille in advance. We had several days in Chamonix, so we reserved for our first day just in case the weather was poor and we had to reschedule. Well the first day was rainy & windy. Sean put us down for the next day (last day to fly Plan in season). Woke up to a magnificent, clear day. Sean & his colleague Olivier met us on time and their personalities were dynamic. We had no fear before our flights and meeting them continued to keep us calm. All instructions were clear and simple to follow through with. I was able to photograph my daughter from my flight and the pictures are fantastic! My only regret is not having Sean or Olivier video us. My daughter had the GoPro and did not record properly. She was so sad to not have the video to show her dad & brother. Guess we will have to do it again with our whole family when we all travel to France together. Thanks guys for a great memory & adventure with ma fille!

Sean met me punctually and immediately put me at ease. Having lived in the Chamonix valley for 10 years, a tandem flight was something I always wanted to experience and was not disappointed. Sean has a very good reputation in the valley and from my flight, it is obvious why.

Easy schedule, my children (8 & 11) and I did paragliding. Sean and his instructors made us feel really comfortable and secured. My children said that was the best thing, they did in Europe. My husband saw us how much we enjoyed that he tried too..
It was scary to take off but once we were in the air. it was so amazing.. hard to describe...
We highly recommended Sean and his crew..
