Fatal Accident on 17th January 2021

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

The exact cause of the accident has yet to be determined. 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.
