As an independent Flight Instructor and Mountain pilot, can recommend this company. Reliable aircraft, maintenance, rigorous instructors. Except four yours truly :-) the best and safest people to fly with if you want to learn, or do a scenic trip, from this airfield.

I booked this plane ride for my mother and she completely enjoyed it. The pilot speaks both English and French and made sure that she was at ease. Absolutely worth the try and money. Free car parking spaces available. Non-flyers get an added advantage to see the flight from the terrace.

We found the air tours on Tripadvisor as we do with most things when travelling. We called the number and spoke to Lauren who was able to speak English well enough to make the whole experience on the phone very easy. We went for the Mont Blanc tour at 50 minutes. We arranged for the following day. We arrived about 20 minutes early and were spoken to by the guys in the reception who were friendly and helpful. We were told our pilot (Jeremy) would be with us shortly. After about 15 minutes he arrived having just completed a tour with another family. The plane was quite small and perfect for the job in hand. Jeremy was an extremely nice guy and able to speak very good English (Oh the shame I feel at not being able to speak French very well). We taxied out to the runway and it felt like we were airborne within what felt like about 50m! The ride, as in all small aircraft, is bumpy but never scary or dramatic in any way. We headed towards Mont Blanc almost scraping the wings on the Aravis range on the way. The experience is completely breathtaking from start to finish. Jeremy was a mine of information with a very good knowledge of the surroundings. It is amazing how close you get to the peaks at times. Take a good camera and click away to your hearts content. I have to say this is possibly the best holiday thing to do anywhere. Jeremy flew the plane with great skill and put us in some fantastic places. Please don't take my word for it, go there and try for yourself. It really is worth every penny of the cost.

On an afternoon in mid January we flew out of Annecy airport ( Aeroport d'Annecy) in a Cessna 182, with an experienced and knowlegable pilot ( their Chief Flying Instructor no less), turned left past the city and flew through the valleys over Thones, , Clos dez Baz, Chamonix,, Mer de Glace, and all the other significant sights before returning to Annecy by flying up the side of the lake and coming back over the airport with an excellent view of the Old Town and Chateau. Fantastic views of the glaciers, the ski runs, the trains, the cable cars and more Fantastic flight and great value for money!!

We felt very safe and comfortable. To see the tip of Mont Blanc Massif and the glaciers up close...Definitely worth it! I’d go again in a heartbeat.
