I'm so sorry to hear about this tragedy. After receiving much help from Pascal and many other wonderful members of this community, a working set of Paparazzi aircraft has facilitated me in the completion of my Ph.D. dissertation defense, and in surveying the damage caused by the disastrous floods here in Nashville, TN. I bring with me significant embedded systems expertise, and experience in integration of PPZ into large scale aircraft, so I will be happy to contribute to whatever I can. My deepest sympathies to his family and to all those that knew him.

Two days ago, Pascal, also known as Hecto, and the father of this
project died in an accident while climbing in the Pyrénées mountains
in the south of France.
He had dedicated the last 7 years of his life to the success of this
project. He was taking care by himself of a huge part of the project,
to name only a few : development and maintenance of the entire ground
segment, navigation and flight plan algorithms, code generation and
build system, distribution packaging, server infrastructure...

In respect for his commitment, the Paparazzi project must go on and
volunteers wanting to take over tasks are asked to do so.

Let's keep Paparazzi flying !
