The pilot of a glider, a Schleicher ASG 29E (SP-3769), was killed when impacting a forested terrain at Lysá Poľana, near the border to Poland. Possible high winds were a factor, especially at lee side of the Tatra mountains. The pilot (40, Polish national) was participating in the 2016 FCC (Flight Challenge Cup Gliding), which was held in Prievidza, Slowakia. On that day more incidents happened - mostly usual outlanding - involving participants of the FCC.
