Icare test

Material tests for paragliding pilots

Material tests for paragliding pilots

The first edition of ICARE TEST took place in St Hilaire, on the South launch.
The event was organized in partnership with the French magazine Parapente Mag.
See you this year on Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 September

These two days offer pilots, after registration and a deposit, the possibility of trying out paragliders, harnesses and free flight instruments, by borrowing them directly from manufacturers and importers present on the south launch as part of the Icare Test. Following the success of 2022, ICARE TEST will henceforth be a flagship activity of the Coupe Icare.


Rate : € 15 for two trial days
A deposit check of 2000 € (or a pre-authorization on a credit card) will be required at registration, and returned at the end of the event.

Info : 
The pilots registered to ICARE TEST will have priority to the shuttles, free for all the participants during these 2 days.
The Saint Hilaire paragliding instructors will provide continuous information on the aerological conditions at takeoff, but the pilots will fly under their own and entire responsibility.
No sale of equipment on site.
Free shuttles between the Lumbin LZ and the St Hilaire takeoffs will be available for the pilots.
A small catering will be available, in addition to all the restaurants seating on the Plateau des Petites Roches.
