Pilot Gerasim Taran was not killed but suffered serious injuries, according to reports from Russia’s Kommersant newspaper and RIA Novosti news agency. The cause of the crash is still unknown, though investigators have found no evidence that it was caused by pilot error or mechanical failure. In addition to piloting skills (he’d been flying for 20 years), Taran also had extensive experience with helicopters—he had worked as an air traffic controller before taking over his own fleet from his father-in-law seven years ago.”

According to Komsomolskaya Pravda, preliminary information suggests that Vyacheslav Taran was returning home from France after his birthday celebrations when he died in a helicopter accident in Russia.

The helicopter was flying from France to Russia and carrying the billionaire, who was returning home after his birthday celebrations. He died when it crashed near the city of Orsk in the Orenburg region, according to Russian media reports quoting local officials.

It is not clear what caused the crash but there were no survivors among those on board, according to investigators from Rosgosstrakh – a branch of Russian Ministry of Health and Social Development (MOSHSD).

While all of the deaths in this space are tragic, Vyacheslav Taran’s death is the latest of a series of such events. On Nov. 23, the co-founder of the Hong Kong-based company Amber Group, Tiantian Kullander, died in his sleep at the age of just 30. On Oct. 28, crypto developer and Makerdao co-founder, Nikolai Mushegian, drowned in Puerto Rico.
