According to Kelly's get well page on Facebook, he is still in ICU but has stood up on his own and may be moved from ICU soon.

 

Here is a statement from the Ultimate Distribution website:

 

"(Thursday) afternoon, Ultimate’s chief and commander Kelly Jablonski, was involved in a plane crash just outside the Vancouver airport. By the graces of those higher powers above us, Kelly survived his ordeal.

 

"He is now recuperating in the hospital from a broken back, smoke inhalation, and some minor burns. Being the super human that he is, he is expected to make a full recovery. Power to you Kelly from all of us at Ultimate and the whole skateboard industry."
