Telephone or text message: 0033610282077 or Fly Chamonix e.mail

At this time of year the Chamonix lift company closes all the aerial lifts, only the Montenvers cog railway is operating. Unfortunately this means that we have no lift access to any suitable take off areas so we cannot offer any tandem paragliding until the start of the winter skiing season (expected 12th December). Apart from the extended month of November, we are open for flying all year round.

Brevent / Planpraz
(Gondola closes Friday 6th November, then re-opens for winter season 12th December snow permitting)
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 11h, 12h, 13h each day.
1000m vertical descent, ax 20 mins flight time.
Cost: 100 Euros plus lift ticket (13.50 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.

Aiguille du Midi 3842m (Cable car re-opens 19th December)
Probably THE most dramatic lift served flight in the French Alps and often cited by enthusiastic solo pilots as one of the most dramatic flights in the world! A miniature expedition using crampons & with a mountain guide to access the launch area followed by a smooth aerial journey amidst the snow & ice adorned high alpine peaks and glaciers of the Mont Blanc massif. Not for the faint hearted !
Flights early morning each day.
2700m vertical descent, 30 – 40 mins flight time depending upon weather conditions.
(Whole event time around two hours thirty). Cost: 240 Euros plus lift ticket , mountain guide services included.
