fatal Paramotor accident


Recommended Posts

It is with sadness that I have to report a fatal paramotor (fitted with a trike) accident that happened on Thursday night. I don't have the full details yet but it seems the pilot initiated a spiral dive that he couldn't recover from (reason unknown at this time) and impacted the ground with excessive vertical and horizontal speed. He died instantly. He was an experienced pilot who had performed this manoeuvre many times before.

I had left the club about 45 minutes prior to the accident so was lucky not to witness it. Unfortunately many of his friends did.
