in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

A passion for flying! With a wealth of experience in free flight developed at the Annecy and Chamonix sites, the AlpWind school offers introductory courses in paragliding, mountain flying and cross-country flying.

Take advantage of our experience to discover the Chamonix valley from the air on a tandem flight!

We can introduce you to the joys of paragliding during a tandem discovery flight (approx. 20 min.), but also an aerial trek (45 min. to 1 hr. flight), or a high-mountain flight from the Aiguille du Midi!

AlpWind is a team of pilots with a passion for mountain flying, sharing and adventure.
In addition to the regular team, you'll find specialists in our teaching fields: Antoine Girard (bivouac flying), etc.

Our philosophy? The highest quality paragliding instruction. Our courses, optimized for small groups, ensure a convivial atmosphere and enable students to progress at their own pace, with a view to rapidly achieving autonomy.

Our priority? To train responsible pilots who are aware of their own abilities, so that they can make the most of their flights and enjoy themselves to the full.

Light is Right!
AlpWind is a team of instructors specializing in Thermal Flight, as well as Rando Flight, Mountain Flight and Bivouac Flight. We also offer professional training in paragliding with Monosurfaces.

That's why lightness and Hike and Fly programs are clearly in the school's DNA!
We have a fleet of state-of-the-art wings, harnesses and reserve parachutes, all in mint condition.

For everyone
Whether you're a beginner or an experienced pilot, alone or in a group, we can offer you a schedule of "à la carte" paragliding outings, as well as specific training courses such as Brevet exams, mountain flying or advanced piloting.

The school has the EFVL (Ecole Française de Vol Libre) label, within the FFVL (Fédération Française de Vol Libre).

Large-scale adventure
But AlpWind is also a team of highly qualified instructors, ready to help you prepare and realize your dreams of performance, whether cross-country, high-altitude or expedition flying. We can help you prepare for and realize your dreams of performance, whether cross-country, high-altitude flying or expeditions, from unprecedented adventures such as the Grande Traversée des Alpes, to training and preparation for long-distance trips.
For those curious about nature and thirsty for new horizons, we also organize Paragliding Trips in autumn and winter. These are divided into two themes: adventure-exploration trips and discovery-tourism trips.
So strap on your harness and take to the skies with AlpWind!
