On October 25,2022 at approximately 1800 Pacific standard time, an unregistered Airborne Windsports Edge X weight-shift control aircraft was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident at Alturas Municipal Airport (AAT), Alturas, California.

There were no witnesses who observed the accident flight and no flight track data that captured the event. According to a friend of the pilot, they had recently completed several demonstration flights together before the friend sold the aircraft to the pilot. After the pilot suggested to his friend that he had limited experience in the accident aircraft, the friend recommended he receive some training before he operated the aircraft.
