free flying across the African skies
Jonathan Koehler had a goal, to hike & fly Mt Kilimanjaro. On 13 September 2022 this courageous American paragliding pilot had a taste of extreme altitude not just on foot, but also when he took to the skies. We congratulate Jonathan for pulling this off in very difficult conditions.
He was part of a larger team of adventurists travelling with Paraglide Kilimanjaro. The expedition was supported & led by Linda Willemse, Ben Arnold, Dawson Chonjo, Steven Mtui, Robinson Massawa and Cosmas Kuweta, along with 30 other mountain crew inclusive of porters, cooks etc.
Enjoy an incredible ‘armchair’ journey with him from snow cap of Mt Kilimanjaro to the dusty town of Moshi – Watch the Video
