Passenger killed in Kauai crash was from Canada

By Associated Press

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) Police are identifying the two men killed when a light sport aircraft crashed on the Hawaiian island of Kauai earlier this week.

Kauai police say Tuesday's crash killed 54-year-old pilot Gerry Charlebois of Kapahi and 53-year-old Canadian passenger Mark McKenzie, of Pickering, Ontario.

They were in a motorized, seated hang glider in a valley below a remote spot high in the mountains of western Kauai. The Federal Aviation Administration says the light sport aircraft crashed on the side of a mountain.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the cause of the crash.

The aircraft is registered to Birds in Paradise, a tour company founded by Charlebois. The company markets itself to visiting travelers even though federal regulations prohibit the aircraft from being used for tours or thrill rides.
