A single-engine airplane piloted by a student skidded off a runway and overturned at Chino Airport on Wednesday, December 12th, resulting in a minor injury to the instructor, authorities said.

The Piper PA-28-140 was landing on runway 26R about 10:45 a.m. when it went off the left side of the runway and came to rest upside down in a ditch, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.

The pilot, a 35-year-old man, was not injured, said Massiel Ladron De Guevara, a spokeswoman for the Chino Valley Fire District. The passenger, a 24-year-old instructor, suffered a minor injury but declined to be hospitalized.

The plane is registered to DuBois Aviation, which operates a flight school out of the airport, according to Federal Aviation Administration records. The plane was built in 1967.

The airport, which is run by San Bernardino County, has three runways. It was not immediately clear whether the accident affected operations.
