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!!

    Teil 2 des Sommerurlaubs - Dune du Pilat:
    Ich sags gleich, mir waren alle meine AirDesign Schirme viel zu schade für den Sand. Darum musste die Fremdmarke dran glauben.
    Rennrad fahren, baden, im Sand spielen - die Tage waren wunderbar!

    Here is a little video of a Climb and Fly we pulled off last week in South Africa. The conditions weren't great for flying in the time we had there but days like this are for me the most special; A short flight after a fun climb of three pitches to the top of a beautiful granite dome.

    This video is about Climbing and Flying in Paarl Rocks South Africa

    Rückblick Sommer:
    Im Juli gings in den verdienten Sommerurlaub. Auftakt in Annecy. Morgendliche Hike&Fly's und nach zweitem Frühstück mit Croissants und schwimmen im See die Gegend aus der Luft erkunden. Auch ein Ausflug an die Aravis-Kette war dabei.
    Nach entspannten Tagen gings weiter an den Atlantik - Dune du Pilat...

    Teil 3 des Sommerurlaubs:
    Auf der Rückfahrt von der Düne haben wir einen Halt in der Auvergne gemacht. Nach einem Tag wandern aufgrund zu starkem Wind, war am kommenden Tag ein netter Hike/Fly auf einen der Grasberge drin, bissl rumsoaren inkl.
    Anschließend gings weiter an den Duy de Dôme - DEM Flugberg in der Auvergne. Bei mega Temperaturen kamen wir uns in der Vulkanlandschaft tatsächlich vor wie im Kochkessel! :-)

    Winter im Anflug:
    Im Allgäu liegen in den höheren Lagen schon ein paar Zentimeter Schnee.
    Zumindest in dieser Schicht Neuschnee waren wir "diesen Winter" die Ersten am Waltenberger Haus.
    Unseren Weiterweg haben wir mangels Steigeisen abgebrochen - aber wir kommen wieder, versprochen!
    Nach vielen SUSI2SL Flügen hab ich den Ausflug mit dem UFO ebenfalls wieder sehr genossen - einfach ein genialer Flügel! ‏ — feeling great
