Registration will be on line early January 2018 and the closing will be on the 31 st of January.
Pilots with flying insurance and FAI sporting license. Foreign pilots please contact us by e-mail.
Athletes must be « Advanced Pilot » rated or have Ippi card 5.
Pilots will not be able to compete unless they have a medical fitness certificate.
To be selected in Adventurers AIRTOUR pilots must have Ippi 5 and cross country experiences.
To be selected in Racers AIRTOUR pilots must have experience in national or international paragliding competition, in hike and fly and some signficant cross country flights.
Certified paraglider (or load test certificate), reserve parachute, helmet and GPS unit.
Choosing some particular equipment depends on each pilot’s hike-and-fly habits: both activities imply a compromise between weight and performance. If you are an avid hiker you will probably opt for some light paraglider, whereas if you are very good at cross-country flying you may choose a high-performance wing. Try to be as light as possible and keep in mind that the more you fly the less you walk.
Participants can make up teams but there will be no specific team ranking.
In the Adventurers Airtour, you can alternate pilot and supporter as you want, but pilot must be announced for at least one day.
Live tracking allows fans to follow every participant’s move on the official Air Tour website’s map.
The pilots’ position is updated every 5 minutes on the Google map thanks to GPS coordinates being sent via GSM network. Spectators are able to see if pilots are flying, sleeping or hiking. They can also have a look at the pilots’ live ranking.
Live tracking is also used for rescue procedures in case of accident: injured or rescuing pilots can start efficient rescue action thanks to the GPS tracking system.
Participants must have their own maps and decide on a particular itinerary according to their daily physical condition and the local weather.
Pilots will need a GPS unit in case of dispute or waypoint failure. The GPS tracking system is the only evidence during the race.
Pilots must take care of their own accommodation throughout the race.
No, they are not. Pilots choose the time when they start and the time they suspend the race for the day. They have to turn on / off their GPS unit for that purpose. When turning off their GPS unit, they must report back to the race committee via phone call or their supporter.
We recommend that pilots take out personal accident insurance and repatriation assistance cover for paragliding.
Le St Hil Airtour combine le parapente et la marche dans une épreuve type Raid. Les pilotes, suivis par leur assistant, évoluent sur un parcours de plus de 300 km qui s’étend sur quatre départements Isère, Savoie, Drôme, et Haute Alpes.
Nouveau parcours : 3 boucles de difficulté croissante.
Nouveau concept : la compétition ou l’aventure !
Le Airtour en mode aventure : ici pas de classement, seulement votre position indiquée sur la carte live.
Le Airtour en mode compétition : ici les mêmes règles que les précédents Airtours. Vous devez réaliser dans l’ordre le parcours vert puis le bleu et pour finir le rouge.
