Fatal Accident on 06 January 2021

The South Africa Hang-Gliding and Paragliding Association (SAHPA) deeply regrets to convey that a male South African paragliding pilot was involved in a fatal accident at Du Toits Kloof Pass earlier today.

The exact cause of the accident has yet to be determined. A case has been opened with SAPS, and SAHPA will investigate in conjunction with AIID of the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA). Further information on the AIID process.

Our deepest sympathies and condolences go to his family and friends.
