Reaching top of Borneo by helicopter and paragliding

KOTA KINABALU: There are other options to reach the top of Sabah’s most iconic mountain, Mount Kinabalu other than climbing up – by using helicopter and paragliding.

This is proven by Sabah Parks Board of Trustees chairman Dato’ Seri Tengku Dr Zainal Adlin Tengku Mahamood.

“We made a successful historical helicopter landing and tandem paragliding after that on 16 November at 0700 hours.

“The historical landing on Mount Kinabalu summit plateau 3932m was done with single engine helicopter Bell 206 Jet Ranger by Captain Jack Bianncchi of Layang Layang Aerospace, guided by me.
