Prices and Booking

Below you will find prices for the services offered. Rates are shown on a daily basis offering more flexibility: courses and guiding can be made for any dates, pending availability. The prices are also shown on the individual pages relating to the services offered.

• Pilot-Development and Progression tuition/coaching and Fly Guiding: the cost is 225 Euros a day for 1 pilot, 180 Euros a day each for 2 pilots and 160 Euros a day each for 3 pilots.

Please Note: With Pilot Development/Fly Guiding the 225 Euros a day is charged when 2 flights or more are made, unless we are on a long Fly Guiding flight. 1 early morning flight would equate to 1/2 day.

If 2 instructors are required during Pilot Development/Fly Guiding for launch and landing assistance the day will automatically be charged at the Beginner 300 Euros a day rate. As shown above.

• Winter Pilot-Development and Progression coaching is 200 Euros a day per pilot. The costs reduces pro-rata, as above with more pilots: please ask?

All flying service charges shown are for local flying in and around the Chamonix Valley and include transport to and from all the drive-to launch sites and all retrieves, but not cable car costs!

Please Note: An additional charge of 40 Euros a day that covers extra transport costs is made for trips to places like Annecy: this cost is split between all clients in the vehicle. There could also be additional Annecy Navette costs to the upper flying sites: normally (2022) 7 Euros a time.
