We are deeply saddened by Victor Kovats’s passing and our thoughts and prayers go out to his parents and friends during these difficult times. He will be always be remembered for his deep passion for life and his spirit of adventure, and he will always be sadly missed in the wingsuit community.
As a result of this tragedy we will conduct a thorough review of the events that lead into this accident and adopt any appropriate changes for the future of the World Wingsuit League.
For the last three years we have worked closely on safety issues with the athletes, manufacturers and other experts. Still, when the world’s best compete at the highest level in any sport, the risks remain. Viktor was a three time Hungary national champion wingsuiter and a serious contender in the international wingsuit race circuit.
