Please help Canadian Family cover legal fees


On August 9th 2015, my father, 56-year old Grant Wagstaff lost his life in a tragic plane crash in a remote area in Iceland.

Tragically, Grant was co-piloting the plane died trying to escape the plane as it exploded. 

He left behind three children and a wife in Canada. The circumstances around the crash have been under investigation for several years and the family has been left waiting for insurance compensation for years. Grant at 56 years old was the main provider for his family. 

The investigation wrapped up at the end of 2018 after years of fighting for answers the family has been denied any compensation from the millionaire family who hired him and Icelandic insurance company Sojva has claimed that he was a "pilot not flying" which in their opinion means there will be no compensation paid out to the family until the case has gone in front of the courts. 

The insurance company had no right to use information from the report which http://rnsa.is that has been issued and we believe it is illegal. RNF also made a critical error in the report stating my father was a PNF ( pilot non flying ) which does not exist on a single pilot airplane. We have been advised there is no way or extremely unlikely you will not get justice at a higher court and have filed to go to court this year. 

Our family has little to no means to fight the case and are in desperate need to pursue this case to get justice for the family and above all Grant Wagstaff. 

We are asking for $100,000K to help cover all our legal expenses and travel expenses to go to the court case in Iceland this year. 

Thank-you so much for considering our case.
