Pilot Fatally Injured In Gyrocopter Accident

GoFundMe Site Established To Help With Funeral Expenses

The pilot of a gyrocopter was fatally injured Monday when his aircraft went down in a cotton field in Polk County, GA, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

While the paper did not name the pilot, he has been identified as Alexander Vagner, according to a GoFundMe page established to help defray funeral expenses.

"Alexander left for a test flight and unfortunately never made it back to the hanger. We, his family, mourns in his unexpected passing. He was such a devoted and passionate husband of 43 years, loving father, and grandfather of 3 beautiful grandchildren," Pavel Vagner wrote on the GoFundMe site.

"Alexander was very well known in the Gyro community for being such a great person who showed his passion and gratitude for flying. He is loved by all and will never be forgotten by any means. We find peace in knowing that he passed doing what he loved to do. We ask for your help in covering funeral cost as this was by all means, unexpected. We appreciate your kindness in advance during this very difficult and emotional time."
