Managed by Sandie Cochepain (world paragliding champion), Technical director Yohan Esteve and Cyrilde Pinard (French Speedriding champion). Les Ailes du Mont-Blanc paragliding school is a team of passionate pilots and instructors, who love to share their passion for free flight with students and passengers alike. The team will take you on a journey in the world of free flying. From spectacular tandem flights around the Chamonix valley, teaching you to take your first solo flights through to cross country flying and high mountain “para-alpanisme”, such as from Mt. Blanc itself. In the winter the team can take you speedriding, a new sport for good skiers combining the sensations of freeride skiing with free flying using mini wings.
