Re: PPG Fatalities

Another fatality.

Pilot was towing a large flag attached to his paramotor. Video suggest from the towed flag that the flag had a sudden increased drag causing the wing to fly over the pilot and do a frontal collapse. Pilot was at about 100 feet leading to impact with the ground.

I fly enough locations where I may not be familiar with the terrain that having the ability to direct me back to my LZ is very beneficial. The farthest "out" I h...
