Hes going to be OK.
Jeff Boehler was flying his PG at Cayucos and had some kind of a collapse at approx 100 ft. AGL . Too low for the parachute to open. He said he shattered his left foot and broken back… airlifted out to San Jose.
Get well soon Jeff…July 28, 2020 at 6:11 AM #9736Bille FloydGeneral Member

Bummer! Get well soon Jeff. One of my Crestline favoritesJuly 28, 2020 at 1:40 PM #9742
Oh no! Poor Jeff! ☹️😞 So sorry to hear he got hurt. Wishing him a very speedy recovery. ❤️July 28, 2020 at 8:12 PM #9743
Thanks Billie, I may take you up on that. My right one is only 9 1/2. I wonder if that would put a slight left hand turn in the wing???

Jeff, Glad you still have that sense of humor. I am hoping that you will have a quick recovery. If there is something I can do to help, just let me know. Maybe fly your wing (s) so they don’t get rusty? Hang in there as they say. Regards, KimJuly 30, 2020 at 6:24 AM #9753Bille FloydGeneral Member
If your right one is only 9 1/2 , then yea , it would put a slight left hand turn in the
wing ; but we could take a hacksaw, and dice it down to your size !! LOL
Do you want the Carbon ; or a SS foot ?
BilleAugust 1, 2020 at 3:15 AM #9770
Oh, I’m thinking carbon. That way it would match my gray & black colored harness.August 1, 2020 at 9:27 AM #9774Bob PobocikGeneral Member
Jeff, I hope your doing well and you’re progressing in your recovery. I see you have some PG equipment up for sale. Are you giving up the that style of flying?
I’ve bee watching the guys that are doing some late evening PG flying at Crestline and was thinking it might be time to learn. They make it look to fun and easy. Then your accident reminded me why I’ve avoided learning to fly a PG.
I hope to see you in the LZ in the near future. Be safe!

Heal quickly Jeff.
I am running out of people to fly with!
Do whatever you need to do to get well.
