Date & Time: 11/02/2017, 0930 PST

Aircraft: CESSNA 172R
Injuries: 3 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional

On November 2, 2017, about 0930 Pacific standard time, a Cessna 172R, N2103T, was substantially damaged during an off airport landing after the engine experienced a loss of power shortly after takeoff from Redding Municipal Airport (RDD), Redding, California. IASCO Flight Training operated the airplane as an instructional flight under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The certified flight instructor and two students were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the local area training flight, and no flight plan had been filed.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the flight departed to the southeast. About 3 miles from the airport, the pilot contacted RDD tower personnel and reported an engine failure with sparks coming from the engine. The tower controller cleared the flight to land runway 34. During the approach, the airplane was too high, and the pilot elected to go around. The tower controller then cleared the pilot to land any runway. The pilot made a turn back for runway 16, crossed the runway and landed in a field.

The airplane was recovered for further investigation.
