Dolomites Flying - Help Stop Ban

The President of the Italian Paragliding and Hang Gliding Association, Luca Basso, addressed an urgent appeal to all European air sports organizations. Due to the current ideal weather, many mountain sports and aviation accidents in the Dolomites. Particularly in the areas of operation Val di Fassa / Canazei and Molveno / Brenta Dolomites, it is been repeated obstruction of rescue helicopters by paragliders.

The situation is so precarious that a crisis meeting was convened with the provincial government of Trentino. Luca Basso tells in his letter that a possible consequence of a complete ban could be in the Dolomites, paragliding and hang gliding ("... close completely in Dolomites ").

Safety Notice: all pilots in case of accident, MUST move from the area (1Km radius) or are requested to land immediately in order to let the helicopter fly in safety. As the situation in the Dolomites is apparently so critical that the authorities want to take action, we appeal to all pilots to be particularly sensitive in this respect and to behave in an exemplary manner.

Negli ultimi giorni a Canazei e nell’area di volo interessata si sono verificati ripetuti episodi nei quali piloti in volo hanno ostacolato l’intervento dell’elisoccorso. In particolare, i piloti non si sono allontanati dall’area operativa, occupando zone di volo sufficientemente distanti (almeno 1 km di raggio), continuando l’attività di decollo ed evitando di raggiungere l’atterraggio in caso di impossibilità di allontanamento dall’area interessata ai soccorsi.

Tale ingiustificabile comportamento, mette in serio pericolo i piloti in volo, l’equipaggio che procede ai soccorsi e coloro che necessitano di immediata assistenza medica (siano essi volo liberisti, alpinisti, motociclisti ecc.).

Si invitano, pertanto, tutti i piloti ad abbandonare immediatamente l’area di possibile interevento dell’elisoccorso, se possibile, allontanandosi dalla zone di incidente (o di operatività dell’elicottero) o raggiungendo immediatamente l’area di atterraggio (se non essa stessa interessata alle operazioni di soccorso).
