Fatal Accident on 22 January 2020

The South Africa Hang-Gliding and Paragliding Association (SAHPA) deeply regrets to convey that an Austrian paragliding pilot was involved in a fatal accident at Langebaan yesterday.

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 IAAD of the SACAA. Further information on the AIID process.

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