- "For my first tandem flight I can't think of anybody better to fly with than Sean. He exudes an air of calm, professional confidence and is very relaxing in those nervous pre-take off moments. Once in the air he's clearly at home and passes the sheer fun of flight on to you. In the 20 minute flight he spoke of how it all works, the terrain over which we were flying and his own passion for the mountains. Some tight turns toward the end and some truly superb quality GoPro images topped off a great experience. I can highly recommend flying with Sean at Fly Chamonix." - Trip Advisor
- "Had a great flight with Sean on a beautiful sunny day in October! He arranged instructors for me and 5 friends and we all had a brilliant time. Felt in very safe hands and all was done with professionalism and kindness. Highly recommended." - Trip Advisor
- "From the time we booked Sean's communications and professionalism were faultless, he answered all our questions and suggested we change the time slightly as conditions would be better at the take off site. This demonstrated that he wasn't just after our money but keen to give us the best experience possible. I had the privilege of being given the flight of a lifetime. From the moment we took off I was impressed at just how good a pilot David is, he clearly has a real passion and enthusiasm for flying para-gliders which he inevitably passes on to his passengers.I was offered a go at taking the controls and later in the flight a chance to do some tricks but for me I just wanted to chill out in the air and enjoy the flight and the airtime along with the incredible views you just cant get elsewhere in the area. If you are in the area and find yourself looking up at the para-gliders wondering what its like to fly in the most wonderful surroundings then don't think about it, just book a trip with Sean at Fly Chamonix. It will be the highlight of your visit to the area and one in which you will never forget." - Trip Advisor
- "This was my first time paragliding and it was a truly amazing experience. It was a smooth flight and Sean made it seem so easy to do - I loved every minute and didn't even once feel anxious. Thank- you to Sean for providing a really friendly and professional service." - Trip Advisor
