SA’s paraglider makes first legal flight off Everest – Pierre Carter – REAL FOOTAGE

Posted on 06/06/2022

It took 55-year-old Pierre Carter just 20 minutes to fly from a point near the summit of Mount Everest before he landed near the Nepalese settlement of Gorakshep high in the Himalayan mountains. With this jump, he has opened the door, or more accurately, the skies above the peak for ‘climb and fly’ adventurers on the world’s highest mountain. Carter told BizNews how he used part of his nest egg to finance his quest and how he has the highest mountain on Antarctica in his sights as he tries to conquer all seven of the highest peaks in the world.
