Wolochatiuk, 40, was killed soon after he took off from the first cliff of the Stawamus Chief near Squamish, according to the BC Coroners office.
Wolochatiuk was speed-flying, an extreme sport similar to paragliding. He hit a tree and fell about 500 metres.
Unlike paragliding, which uses a bigger wing, and skims along the air current, creating a slow gentle ridge, speed flying is faster, more thrilling and more dangerous.
Extreme sport began in Europe
It started in Europe in the 80s, with skiers, but over the years it evolved into an extreme sport that could be done with out snow or skies.
Wolochatiuk's death is the second of a speed flier on the Squamish Chief. In 2013, Jeff Beroia fell to his death.
Coroner Barbara McClintock said it's took early to say if a policy change is warranted for the sport. Right now it's regulated under the same rules as paragliders.Suggest a correction
