Parabatix sky racer

Parabatix Sky Racer Jeremy Penone hits the spot!

We can’t wait to get back to the mountains and start tearing up the alpine air at this year’s round of Parabatix Sky Racers in France.
Flying disciplines and pilots from all over the world will come together to fill the airspace at the edge of the cliffs at Saint Hilaire du Thouvet / Lumbin as sky racers rip loops and fantastic manoeuvres round pylons overlooking the Alps!

After the 2015 Sky Race here tension is high as new comers and runner-up racers will be fighting for a spot on the podium. Come and see it for yourself and check out what this amazing sky race is all about.

Situated in the beautiful Rhone Alps, perched on the edge of an incredible mountain range not far from Grenoble, it really does make a spectacular sky racing location.

This area is without doubt one of the most impressive places to fly with it’s 1000 meter cliff face either side of the event. All the better for our epic Parabatix sky racers to compete.
Famous for its International free-flight festival the Coupe Icare, which has over the years managed to put this place at the top spot on the global map of events. Expect magnificent views, fierce competition, and some of the most crazy jaw-dropping tricks from world class pilots.

Each September, these villages welcome thousands of spectators to the Coupe Icare and Icarobatix, the most famous event in the paramotoring calendar. In association with the CoupeIcare the world’s premier free flight meeting. Its going to be the social highlight of the French summer. This event is a must see!

Get ready for an action packed aerial extravaganza. Brace yourself and check out our awesome video right here.

Split into two spectacular locations right next to each other. Lumbin at the bottom of the mountain and St Hilaire at the top. Check out the map and scheduled times  and how to get there.
