Unfortunately, with limited available information, it is not possible to confirm the exact course of events. Witness statements and the GPS track-log provide some indication as to what transpired, but not the root cause of the accident. Inspections of the equipment suggest that neither the Paramotor nor the paraglider failed during the flight.

Pilots should be aware that when the wind is more than 30 degrees off perpendicular to the ridge, you can expect lift to be approx. half compared to 0 degrees off perpendicular. Also local terrain (obstacles)can also effect lift available.
