This was an amazing experience with 2 knowledgeable and friendly guys! My boyfriend and I were able to do a tandem paraglide at the same time so we could see each other in the air, the process was simple and easy, the instructors told us exactly what to expect and far from feeling terrified of the height etc (which I...

Even faced with an extremely last minute booking, the lowest of low season in Chamonix, and pretty much the worst conditions for flying a paraglider, Sean and his colleague did their absolute best to make our experience amazing. And I'm happy to say they did! Flight time was a little on the short side, due to wind conditions and lack... More

Trying tandem paragliding was one of the highlights Chamonix offered us. Sean showed professionalism from start (pre-booking) to the end ( after landing)and ensured a smooth and very enjoyable flight. Looking forward to try the Aiguille du Midi flight next time and for sure will contact Fly Chamonix again!

A must do once in your lifetime experience. And what better way by doing this at one of Europe's most stunning sceneries. The Mont Blanc region. Sean the pilot was great. An experienced paraglider and polite guy to be with.

The guides are friendly and great - if you ask, they'll do more adventurous moves in the air, but won't if you don't ask. It's incredible peaceful in the air and truly feels like flying. Also, you don't even have to "jump off a mountain" - it's as simple as walking, until you notice your feet aren't touching the ground... More

Sean donated his time and money to contribute to some local artists of Chamonix who recently lost their work place due to a fire, by doing some flights ...and in one of them he took my daughter Ona!! An easy going and charismatic person who made the day to my 8 year old girl by doing his work with passion... More

The family was not in Chamonix for very long, but I am so glad we made this a priority! Sean was the pilot and unbelievably accommodating. We got to the top of the ski lift and had two more people in the family decide they wanted to try out paragliding because of Sean's enthusiasm. Not a single one of us... More

Thanks Julia, to be fair & respectful to the other pilots in the Chamonix Valley there are plenty of other great pilots ! I really appreciate your remark about our being accommodating, we do try our best to help wherever possible and view the tandem experience as being more than "just" about the flight. More

I had an absolutely incredible experience paragliding with Sean from 'Fly Chamonix.' Even when the weather wasn't suitable for takeoff from the first suggested take-off site, Sean responsibly and professionally decided it wasn't safe enough and generously agreed to drive us to an alternative site on the other site of Chamonix - a 30 minute drive - at no extra...

I was in Chamonix for only 36 hours and really wanted to Fly! Sean Potts the owner of Fly Chamonix went out of his way to make it happen. He responded quickly to my emails and worked around my time table. He found a place that we could fly based on the weather, picked me up at the hotel, drove... More

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
