NAMPA, ID - A Boise man has been treated for minor injuries following a plane crash in Nampa Monday night.

About 9:00 p.m., Nampa Police officers responded to the area of East Terra Linda Way and Selland Way for a report of a crashed Cessna 150M. 

A family member of the pilot called from the scene and advised the pilot was already headed to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The pilot is a 28-year-old male and a resident of Boise, said Nampa Police Department spokesman Sgt. Tim Riha.

An initial investigation found the pilot had become disoriented while traveling from Burley to Caldwell -- and attempted to land at what he believed was the Caldwell Airport, Riha explained. “Upon attempting to land, he realized he was not at the airport but was unable to avoid crashing. The pilot was the lone occupant of the plane,” he said.

No other citizens were injured, and only minimal property damage occurred as a result of the crash. 

The investigation has been turned over to officials from the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.

Location: Paulding, OH
Accident Number: CEN18LA064
Date & Time: 12/28/2017, 1630 EST
Registration: N4JW
Aircraft: PIPISTREL DOO AJDOVSCINA VIRUS SW
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On December 28, 2017, about 1630 eastern standard time, a Pipistrel Doo Ajdovscina Virus SW airplane, N4JW, impacted terrain during a forced landing on a road following an inflight loss of engine power near Paulding, Ohio. The pilot, who was the sole occupant, was uninjured. The airplane sustained substantial wing damage when it exited the road and impacted vegetation and rough terrain. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed in the area about the time of the accident, and the flight was not operated on a flight plan. The local flight originated from a private airport near Paulding, Ohio.

According to an initial statement from the pilot, he was conducting slow flight about 80 kts when the engine began to lose power. He switched ignition systems and engine performance did not improve. The pilot switched fuel tanks and no improvement in engine performance was noted. Changing power appeared to improve engine operation. However, engine performance got worse again. The pilot tried to reach a private airstrip about 3 miles east of his location. He was not able to reach the airstrip, given the local wind and airplane altitude, so he selected a nearby road for a forced landing. The road was ice covered and provided very little braking. During rollout, the pilot was concerned about approaching railroad crossing signs and a tall bush. The airplane's left wing impacted the bush just before the airplane crossed the railroad. The airplane subsequently swerved to the left and the nose wheel broke off when the airplane impacted the ditch on the northwest side of the railroad. The airplane stopped on the north side of the railroad about 30 ft off the road.
