Knik Glacier, Alaska – A 16-year-old pilot was injured after crashing upon takeoff Sunday evening near Knik Glacier.
Authorities say the accident took place shortly before 6 p.m. Sunday evening. A teenage pilot sustained minor injuries as a Piper Super Cub he was manning crashed during takeoff from a Knik River sand bar. No one else was in the plane.
Another pilot flew the young man to the Palmer municipal airport where paramedics then transported him to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center for treatment. The extent of the pilot’s injuries have yet to be determined, however, the FAA described them as “minor.”
The victim’s identity has yet to be revealed. Authorities say it is not uncommon to see such a young pilot operating an aircraft. A flying certification can be earned as early as age 16.
