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 wow - gerade aus dem wunderschönen Nordspanien zurück, wartete in der nächsten Poststation schon der Volt 3 auf mich! Endlich! Und das beste, am Tag darauf war bereits Flugwetter angekündigt.
    Danke Martin, dass es mit dem Versand so klasse geklappt hat und ich somit mit dem schönen Baby gestern den ersten Flug im Schwarzwald erleben durfte.

    Ich bin begeistert!!!

    Ich bin begeistert!!!
    Von Start bis Landung ein Traum und was ich aus der knappen Stunde Flugzeit erspüren konnte ist er im Handling noch feiner geworden, durch das geringe Tuchgewicht startet er kinderleicht, in Leistung und Geschwindigkeit ist er ein deutliches Stück stärker geworden, das Design ist eine Augenweide und das Wingovern und Sprialen geht noch satter

    Konnte mich somit bis fast zum Sonnenuntergang in zarter Herbstthermik halten und das neue Volt-Feeling genießen...

    Ich freue mich schon auf die ersten langen und weiten Streckenflüge im Schwarzwald mit dem tollen Gerät!

  • Diesen Herbst durfte ich drei schöne Tage in den Dolomiten verbringen. Ich war zum ersten Mal dort und direkt total gefesselt von dieser traumhaften Landschaft. Nachdem ich in den ersten zwei Tagen ausgiebig zum Fliegen gekommen bin, entschied ich mich am letzten Tag die 1000 hm Meter zu Fuß zum Col Rodella aufzusteigen. Einmal mehr zeigte sich mein Rise 3 als toller Begleiter. Leicht zu tragen - toll zu fliegen.

    Ein Wochenende mit Traumwetter wurde perfekt genutzt: Noch vor dem Frühstück in knapp 4 Stunden von Sulden über den Hintergrat hinauf zum Ortler und mit der SUSI 3 wieder runter! Soo geil! :-)

  • Ein paar Picks von Hinterstoder sowie Kössen Testival 2018 - ebenso hatte ich in Kössen die Gelegenheit den neue Eazy 2 zu Testen. Naja was soll man sagen, kurz gesagt mega geiles und agiles Teil für eine A Klasse. Hat richtig spaß gemacht. Leicht überladen ist er dann nochmal um ein Stück Spaßiger :-)

    This is the first Paraglider flight From Cerro Mono in the Cerros de Mavecure, Eastern Colombia. We've made two trips here in the last couple years to climb and fly among these beautiful domes. The granite here is some of the oldest rock on Earth and the place has a very cosmic vibe to it. Thanks to Kieran Brownie for capturing this unique flight! Thanks also to Wilson who helped me lay out my UFO 21 and launch from the sharp rock slabs.

  • Ich hatte heute die Gelegenheit den neuen Eazy2 SL in gr S mit 95kg zu Testen (Danke an www.fliegmit.at für den Tester).
    Wobei ich sagen muss, ich bin seit meiner Schulung nicht mehr unter einem A Schirm gehangen. Hatte zuerst etwas Zweifel, hatte da so meine Erinnerungen an meinen Schulungpanzer, aber ich muss sagen, die wurden heute alle ausgeräumt und ich bin positiv beeindruckt und wirklich überrascht. hatte einen fetten Grinser im...
    Ich hatte heute die Gelegenheit den neuen Eazy2 SL in gr S mit 95kg zu Testen (Danke an www.fliegmit.at für den Tester).
    Wobei ich sagen muss, ich bin seit meiner Schulung nicht mehr unter einem A Schirm gehangen. Hatte zuerst etwas Zweifel, hatte da so meine Erinnerungen an meinen Schulungpanzer, aber ich muss sagen, die wurden heute alle ausgeräumt und ich bin positiv beeindruckt und wirklich überrascht. hatte einen fetten Grinser im Gesicht.
    Alle Eigenschaften aus dem Werbeprospekt treffen zu, das klingt jetzt wieder wie eine Werbung, stimmt aber!!!
    Von leichtem Thermikkurbeln bis Spaßprogram hatte ich heute alles dabei. Fette Wingover, steile Spiralen, Klapperziehen und B-Stall. Der Schirm vermittelt imense Sicherheit und Stabilität bei gleichzeitigen agilen reagieren auf Pilotenimputs.
    Sollte demnächst mal ein "bockiger" Tag kommen werde ich ihn mir denke ich nochmal ausborgen, um entspannt hochzuturnen.
    Freu mich schon darauf.
    Ich hatte leider die Actioncam etwas "ungünstig" eingestellt, aber ordentliche Fotos werden noch nachgeliefert
