The Coupe association



The Coupe Icare is organized by a not for profit association "COUPE ICARE.ORG " created in 1989.

Coupe Icare.Org is affiliated with the French Federation of Free Flight and approved by the Ministry of Youth and Sports. Its headquarters are located in St Hilaire, at the Tourist Office.

The Coupe Icare.Org association is the project manager for the event. All major decisions and orientations concerning the event are made either at the annual general assembly, or at meetings of the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee.

The work is then carried out by the staff of the association (3 part-time employees) or entrusted to volunteers or partner associations.



The Coupe Icare.Org association receives assistance and support from many associations who, each in its own way, contribute to the tremendous success of this event by assuming the responsibility of a specific role.

But also a historical and close support with its institutional and private partners!
