Friendly staff,(Vincente & Ludo) obliging with lift from landing site up to take off site as we only had cycles to get there. Small team, personal experience, two of staff had previously visited New Zealand so particularly receptive to us first-timers from down-under!

Pilots were calm & clear- very easy to follow instructions for take off & landing. Swooping around sky above Lake Annecy was truly amazing!
At some points, circling around to catch upward drafts was a bit like rocking around on a boat but other than that the flight was just how I imagine birds must feel.

Recommendation- take your camera in your pocket & takes selfies at take off &, if with friends, up in the air.
Wear a warm jacket (even on a June day of 27 degrees on ground) as it is cool when up at 2000 metres and travelling at 40 kph

This was the first time paragliding for my wife and I. The staff were very friendly and fun. They also went out of their way to call us throughout the day and let us know the wind conditions so we didn't drive up to the top on a day with bad weather. I would recommend this to anyone interested along with our guides Ludo and Franck.

What a fabulous flight. Alexis gave me complete confidence in his ability and his English was great. As a result I really enjoyed the flight as it has been on my wish list for many years. Great value for money and he really chased the thermals so got full 45 min airtime. Fully recommend airmax and their small boutique team. Great bunch of pilots and the support team also. Got to fly next to a small eagle and hugged the mountain and tree tops. Want to do it agin right now as it was such a buzz. He also made it clear that if we could not stay up for full time because of insufficient lift then they would review the bill.
