SOME TESTIMONIALS

Amazing Jump and Amazing Crew

Scheduled the jump with Pierre. They worked so well with accommodating our group. They even let us schedule a last minute jump with a friend. Felt very safe. They were all a lot of fun. You won’t be disappointed.

Cassie

So amazingly wonderful, so easy, so safe, so brilliant

This was the highlight of our holiday at Lake Annecy. We were so pleased that we chose to go with Airmax. Ludo and Alexis and the rest of the team were fun and professional. For anyone who thinks it requires bravery, I PROMISE, it does not. It is as easy as getting in and out of an armchair. And totally worthwhile. Alexis had to put up with me screaming to get rid of all my stress, and it certainly worked. The views, the comfort, the safety all combine to give you this amazing sense of awe and peace. Well worthwhile and totally and utterly recommended. (PS Go in the afternoon to get the thermals. Remember to book in advance at their cabin at Col de Forclaz, and on the day wear sunglasses, closed shoes and a windproof jacket.)
