The origins of Flight of the Gibbon date back to 2007. The company was the vision of New Zealand adventurer David Allardice, a well-known explorer who loved adventure sports and Asia. To enable others to experience the beauty and majesty of the Thai rainforest that he adored so much, David set up Thailand’s first ever treetop Zipline course. With a passion for the outdoors and the environment, David wanted to create a safe and eco-friendly business model. This would benefit the local community, wildlife and the environment, and at the same time provide something unique that people would truly enjoy.

Flight of the Gibbon killed my son Spencer Donaldson

1/ 5

On April 13,2019 my daughter and son-in-law Spencer Donaldson chose a zip line zipline tour without Flight of the Gibbon, advertised as the safest zipline operator in a Thailand ad. The only one in compliance with American safety standards (a member of the ACCT based in Boulder Colorado). They advertise on their website as being compliant with ACCT standards. Spencer fell to his death, on the “superman” leg of the course when the cable that held him to the main cable failed. The clamps holding the short cable together were installed backwards. The cable was pulled though the clamps when his weight (122kg) was applied to the cable. The cable has a breaking strength of more than 8000kg. There was no backup safety cable at this locations (a requirement) and he subsequently fell 15m to the rocky jungle floor. His girlfriend witness the whole thing live and on camera. The they made her ride the rest of the course after saving he was “safe” when he was in fact dead. They took more than 4 1/2 hours to get in off the course. Where he was pronounced dead. Flight of the Gibbon has denied responsibility in court. They did however pay for the cremation and the shuttle bus to and from the hotel and police stations all week. Thanks to Flight of the Gibbon management and South African farang, Gary Humphreys and especially Gary Searle for paying for the funeral. Yup, Flight of the Gibbon, the safest zipline zip line in Chiang Mai Thailand. Your time will come
