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.

Team of flight directors

The flight directors themselves comprise a team that deserves high praises for their excellence and devotion to task. It includes Eric GRANDJEAN and Marc LOUET, Jean Yves Lamour, Nicolas LE PAPE (assistants flight director) and other assistants responsible for specific air demos, and flight attachés responsible for an airstrip or landing area… In total there are over forty people dedicated to handling this overall job of organizing the flyability of the festival. Two thumbs up for their efficient work!
