The St Hil AirTour combines paragliding and hiking in a Raid-like competition. Each pilot has a supporter and has to cover more than 300km- through 4 departments Isère, Savoie, Haute Savoie, and the Hautes-Alpes.
 If you like hiking and endurance, and if you are an advanced pilot with a sense of adventure (Ippi card 5), the St Hil AirTour is designed for you.

The comp is open to many pilots

– The race combines classic cross-country courses.
– Pilots may choose between hiking and flying, in mountainous areas.
– Rest period is mandatory at night.
– The race is 7 days long and features live tracking thanks to set waypoints that also ensure pilot safety.
– This is a friendly, fun race in which the sense of human adventure allows pilots to discover a new way of flying. Make your dream come true with the St Hil AirTour! You don’t need to fly competitions to enter the race-you just have to love adventure, challenges and hiking in the mountains!
