Amazing experience
I did my tandem flight with Jean-Charles and it was very fun because he let me fly and we did some acrobatic moves, but he is very careful with what the person needs. I recommend it.

JUST DO IT!
Jul 2021
This was the highlight of our trip (other than seeing our kids, of course!) The cost was $120 and it was worth every single penny. If the weather didn't turn bad, we would have done it again the next day.

We are in our 70s and don't let your age concern you! The trained, experienced, and talented instructors will keep you safe.

My husband had a smile on his face for the entire day after his jump. It was fun and I am a scardy-cat but I wasn't afraid for a second.

One of the best experiences we ever had!

Overall a poor experience...
Aug 2020 • Solo
For any future guest - I hope my instructor was just having a bad day. He showed up 20 minutes late and didn't give any reason or apologies. He seemed to be in a bad mood and he was quite arrogant.
More info about the mountains and valley would be nice.
The flight it self was as expected!

Surprise tandem for my kids
Aug 2020 • Family
I bought this tandem paragliding as a surprise for my 8 year old and 15 year old children. I was excited and dreading it at the same time. I really thought they would refuse it on the day but they utterly loved it and want to do it again. The two instructors were friendly and knowledgeable and we felt totally comfortable.

We were lucky that it was a beautiful sunny day but even if it’s it’s cloudy I think it’s an utterly stunning thing to do.

Great experience! Highly recommend!
We had an awesome time with air sports chamonix, Romaine made sure we knew what we were doing and was very knowledgeable on the surrounding areas as we were gliding. Some acrobatics were done at the very end which was so fun! Highly recommend

Unforgettable, great experience.
Aug 2020 • Couples
We had tandem jumps with Hugo and Clement, both did an excellent job, they are well organised and friendly. Instructions are clear and brief, it's really very simple, they strap you in, you run 10 steps and you're off. We had a great time. Flight time was about half an hour. We were booked for 16h00 so there was no queue for the cable car tickets (you buy these separately for €15 each). Video and photos extra at €30 each, well worth it.

Perfect way to end holiday
Jul 2020
We booked directly through Trip Advisor and the communication from the point was excellent. We initially booked for 3pm, but they were fast to say that the time we chose is not suitable for that time of year so gave us alternatives. We were told to meet at the bottom on the cable at 11 and they were bang on time.

The guides were friendly and outgoing - they even let you control the para. Excellent activity and well-worth the extra 30 euros for the video and pictures - be sure to ask for that BEFORE you fly.
