A sad farewell to Peter Vascoyvch

Thursday 22 October, 2009

Peter in better days.

Peter in better days.

Apco’s Anatoly Cohn wrote to us with the sad news that Peter Vascoyvch has lost his fight with cancer:

“My friend the young, talented paraglider designer – Peter Vascoyvch – member of Aeros Team lost his brave battle against cancer. I had the priviledge to work with Peter in the past and highly admired his talent, drive and quiet determination. He passed away last Saturday in hospital in Kiev, leaving behind a wife and two small kids. I last met him at St. Hilaire this September and he was still optimistic, full of plans and new ideas – we will all miss him.

“Taking the opportunity I would like to thank all the pilots and friends who donated funds for his treatments.

“May he rest in peace”.
