A pilot walked away from the crash landing of a small plane this morning in Goodyear.

The single-engine prop plane out of Phoenix Goodyear Airport made what authorities described as a “hard crash landing” at 7:30 a.m. about 200 feet south of MC85 between Sarival Avenue and Cotton Lane.

The pilot, who was the only occupant of the plane, walked away from the crash and refused medical treatment, according to Tom Cole, deputy chief of the Goodyear Fire Department.

Cole said there was no fire at the crash site, but the fire department handled a small fuel leak.

He said Arizona Public Service Co. was also on the scene since the plane may have clipped power lines east of the landing site.

The plane did not flip, but ended on its wheels with its nose down into the turf of a farm field, Cole said.

Cole indicated the pilot, who was not immediately identified, was a student on a training flight from an aviation school at the Goodyear airport.

As the investigation into the crash proceeds, the plane will be repositioned and towed from the field, Cole said.

Cole said the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board would investigate the accident.
