Welcome to the Chronicles of the Free Flight Site from AirDesign.  Here you can read about the latest adventures from our Team Pilots and view the latest videos and photos. The contents come direct from our flying community and represent the passion we all have for this sport.

All pilots love to capture the special moments on film. Wether it’s the latest Hike & Fly tour, or a video of beautiful new flying spot. You can be sure that our Team Pilots will report and share their findings.  The shared adventures are individual - living the dream of Free Flight!

In addition to the Chronicles page, which you are now on, we have another platform entirely dedicated to Hike & Fly.
Hikeandfly.info is an open platform that thrives off the collection of tours from registered users.  Each tour describes the directions on how to get there, the hike up and of course everything about the take off and landing zones. The ascent is also shown by GPS track on a map.   Photos and videos may be uploaded to point out important info such as junctions, take off and landing areas, or just to show the beautiful panorama.

Here is the link to the site - browse your next tours or why not register and show us your own Hike & Fly adventures!!

    Oh man war das wieder schee!
    Zwei super Flugtage im Schwarzwald am Dienstag mit viel Wind und am Mittwoch dann ein super Tag mit Traum-Thermik und nur relativ leichtem Wind. Und es hat sich mal wieder gezeigt, ohne Plan an den Startplatz zu gehen - lohnt sich

    Zur Sicherheit hatte ich aber dennoch alle Vorbereitungen für nen langen Flug getroffen und wurde dafür am Startplatz schon belächelt " na hast was größeres vor " - ich " ne, ne...

    Zur Sicherheit hatte ich aber dennoch alle Vorbereitungen für nen langen Flug getroffen und wurde dafür am Startplatz schon belächelt " na hast was größeres vor " - ich " ne, ne konfirmanten Blase ;-)

    Genial der Start mit drei Tandems in einem Bart! Nachdem es fast überall, bis auf Freiamt blau war, entschied ich mich einfach etwas mit den Wolken zu spielen und meiner Freundin in Waldkirch zuwinken - und tataa, daraus wurde eine feine, vergrößerte Elztalrunde mit vielen schönen Momenten....

    Der Frühling im Schwarzwald ist im vollen Gangen und lässt gespannt darauf warten, was die nächsten Monate noch bringen werden

    My friend Kieran Brownie made this video about a flight from the Squamish Chief. I travel all over the world for climbing and flying, this takeoff my favorite. Squamish means "Mother of the Winds" and conditions can be tricky but on a good day you can soar for hours above the Granite and the Ocean. I'm fortunate to call this place Home.

    The sun is up and yeah it’s Tuesday, but a chance to fly is not to be missed. It’s strong inversion day, a great chance to brake some sweat and take the dust of the glider. Comp season starts on 4th March with Winter Cup.

    Vergangene Woche waren die Prognosen für einen anständigen Flugtag gut.
    Also frei gemacht und in den Bregenzer Wald gedüst.
    Experimente wollte ich keine eingehen. Hatte ich doch genug davon, auf einen extravaganten Startberg zu steigen und nach verkorkstem Einstieg den anderen Fliegern zwei Berge weiter vom Tal aus zuzusehen, wie sie aufkurbeln.
