    The man killed in a light plane crash in Canterbury was a well respected glider pilot


    Emergency services received reports of a light plane crashing at Twizel-Omarama Road near Lake Ohau at 10.50 this morning.

    Omarama Airfield chairman Clive Geddes confirmed the pilot flew out of the Airfield on a solo flight.

    He says the pilot is well known across the whole community.

    Geddes says the man had been a glider pilot and instructor out of Omarama for over 20 years.
