The 48th Coupe Icare adapts !

Just a few weeks away, the 48th Coupe Icare is adapting its 2021 edition to the present sanitary crisis and context. The Coupe will now be held from Tuesday 14 to Sunday 19 September.

“Our aim is to turn the constraints into an opportunity by proposing a most festive, federating event. Everything will be put in place to insure an unforgettable gathering in spite of the context: equipment tests, air sports trade fair, projections of the selected films of 2020 and 2021 and plenty of surprises…”
Daniel Raibon-Pernoud, President of the Coupe Icare.
