It is a great time of year to fly but the Chamonix lift company aided by the indifference of the town hall decides for all of us that the only lift operating at this time of year is the Montenvers train (going to the Mer de Glace). Unfortunately this does not access any suitable paragliding sites so we are on an enforced holiday until the re-opening of the Planpraz (Brevent) lift on the 14th December. Sorry – we would love to take you flying but are not allowed to drive up to the take offs by 4×4 and otherwise it is ax 2 hours walk.
Brevent / Planpraz

1000m vertical descent, ax 20 mins flight time.
100 Euros plus lift ticket (12.20 Euros)
Aiguille du Midi 3842m (1st Dec onwards)
Probably THE most dramatic lift served flight in the whole of 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.

In flight video
With prior warning we can make an HD quality video of your flight using wide angle cameras on telescopic arms. The footage takes in the scenery but is principally about great images of our passengers that are impossible to achieve with a regular hand held camera. The video is recorded onto a 4 GB SD memory card that you keep and is instantly available after the flight. Our footage is unedited and without music allowing you to edit as you wish or save still photos from the HD video footage. Cost: 30 € / person.
NB: you are very welcome to use your own camera equipment either with or without our filming.
If you would like to offer a tandem flight as a gift, we can post or e.mail a gift voucher to you so that you may offer something physical as a gift. There is no need to specify an exact flight date and payment may be made via our website allowing you to obtain the gift voucher the same day.
