How do we get to take off ?
We meet at the foot of the mountain and take the eight person gondola for a seven minute ride up to Prarion, several minutes walk later & we arrive at our take off area.
How do we fly
Once at take off we make a short but clear briefing and then it is time to equip ourselves and to fly. The Prarion take off is gentle and after a short but vogorous run we are airborne , flying high over the pine forest, taking in the dramatic views of the surrounding mountains and eventually our landing field set close to the bottom of the lift.
Every flight is different and every passenger has different desires , our job is to be attentive to you requirements & offer you the most suitable flight possible. We usually explain how to fly the paraglider & hand over the controls if conditions permit and for those who wish we can make some acrobatic manoeuvers – or just a peaceful smooth flight.
You are welcome to bring your own compact camera (with secure leash) or , with prior notice, we can provide video footage for a supplementary fee.
Flights at 9h,10h.
900m vertical descent, ax 10 – 15 mins flight time. Allow one hour for the whole activity.

Booking a flight
If you are flying with friends , with sufficient notice, we can usually arrange for extra pilots so that you may fly at the same time.
It is best to book to fly at the earliest opportunity during your stay in Chamonix so that we may postpone if the weather is initially adverse.
Launching from Prarion requires a specific wind direction so we may contact you prior to the flight to suggest other sites if necessary.
85kg is our limit for males , 70 kg for females, though it also depends a little on age & how the weight is distributed ! We can make exceptions if you are very athletic.
