Peter Vaskovych passed away on October 15th, 2009 after battling leukemia.

With deepest sorrow we express sincere condolences to Peter’s wife Rita Abasova, children Timur and Olesya, parents and sisters.

Peter, a good and great man dedicated to the others, honourable and always plenty of enthusiasm, passed on before time. He was fond of his job, skilful designer, experienced pilot, tender husband and father.

For many of us Peter was a deeply humane being you can only appreciate having as a friend and a colleague, brother in the air. Peter will always stay with us with the paragliders, trikes, aircrafts, painting and with all the beauty he created being talented designer and artist.

Due to the support and kindness You extended to Peter, he believed and struggled against the illness. In July – August his state of health greatly improved. In the end of August doctors stated intense progress and confirmed that there were no need in urgent surgery treatment. Everyone had hoped for the early recovery. Peter had gotten back to work, took part in the exhibition Icare Cup, which took place in France in September. However, after the exhibition Peter’s state of health had abruptly deteriorated. He just hadn’t caught for the treatment in Israel…

We thank to all those who supported Peter and donated to the bone marrow transplant operation. Partly the funds were spent for the search for the donor. The rest will be given to Peter’s children. Timur is 14 and Olesya – 12. We will be sincerely grateful for any donations made to Peter’s family, all the accounts remain open.

Such a loss is tragic beyond words. Peter Vaskovych passed away from us. May he rest in peace.
