It is a great time to fly, the skies are often crystal clear in the mornings & the temperatures are comfortable. The vivid colours of Spring combine with the abundant snow cover adorning the high peaks offering a scenery of stunning contrasts. We usually have smooth flying conditions with the possibility of some good thermic activity.
Brevent / Planpraz
Available: 11th June – 18th September
We fly high above Chamonix with superb views of the Europe’s highest mountain: the Mont Blanc and also the biggest icefall in Europe: the glacier des Bossons
Flights at 8h,9h,10h,11h each day.
1000m vertical descent, ax 20 mins flight time.
Cost: 100 Euros plus lift ticket (13.80 Euros)
The Brevent site, with its two take off areas offers the most reliable flying conditions and thus the best likelihood of being able to fly.
Les Grands Montets (25 juin – 25 septembre)
An incredible flight that allows us to fly alongside the rugged high altitude peaks & spires such as les Drus and the 4100m Aiguille Verte, cruising above the vast Mer de Glace (sea of ice) glacier whilst viewing the distant 4000m Grand Jorasses & the Italian border. As the launch is on a snowy glacier, albeit a rather benign one, we employ a mountain guide (included in the price of the flight) so that we can traverse the glacier without risk. Undoubtedly one of the most dramatic lift served flights in the French Alps, I can still vividly recall every detail of my first flight here some 24 years ago !
Flights at 13h15 each day.
2000m vertical descent, ax 30 – 45 mins flight time depending upon weather conditions.
Cost: 180 Euros plus lift ticket (24 Euros)
