Something you do not want to see next to a flight school:
The pilot was the only person on board, and he survived. His injuries were minor with a cut in his head. He was released at the scene.
Investigators said the pilot was practicing take-offs and landings around 5 p.m., Thursday. When he came in for another landing, he lost power. The pilot tried to restart the engine and it failed, causing it to crash into the tree.
The crash caused the power to go out for about 100 homes in the area.
