We flight with Sean and Gerald. They are friendly and passionate in paragliding. This was the first thing to do when we come to Chamonix and it was absolutely worthy.

I can see a few pictures taken by your staff (I presume?) during the flight. Are pictures at an extra cost? Also are we allowed to take our own go pros and film/take our own pictures? Many thanks

take your own go pro is fine (at your risk). i did this and it's highly recommended, though try to be careful of the microphone position to reduce wind noise. it's an amazing trip and worth recording some of it

Hi How long does it take to do the Tandem Paragliding including the registration process?

Response from flychamonix | Property representative |
Hi. You need to reserve in advance (by e.mail is easiest) this takes about three minutes. Our regular flights from the Brevent ski area in Chamonix, last around 20 mins and you need to allow one hour for the whole event.
