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.
