Hike & fly 

Hike & Fly Test Centre

Chamonix Mont Blanc is an exceptional area for exploring remote mountain take offs, and has access to summits up to 4810m. There are few better places for experimenting with the latest single skin and lightweight paragliding equipment. Over the last couple of years we have been excited about advances in lightweight materials and this field of technology. We have been flying and teaching with the latest lightweight equipment from Niviuk, Neo, Ozone, Skyman and Independence and have grown to love the opportunities and access, that having an incredibly lightweight flying set up can bring.

We operate all year round with test flying equipment, but recommend you contact us in advance to reserve your lightweight set up!
