No injuries were reported when a helicopter tipped over around 4:20 p.m. during a training session at Lincoln Park airport, local police said.

The pilot was performing maneuvers over a small grassy area when the tail rotor struck the ground, rolling the copter onto its side, Lincoln Park Police Detective Mike Bono said.

Flight training school "Aero Safety Training" operates out of the privately-owned airport but police did not know if the pilot was an employee or student from the school, Bono said.

Further investigation will be handled by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Two people escaped without any injuries after a helicopter they were in crashed during a training session at Lincoln Park Airport on Thursday afternoon.

The pair were doing a “practice hover” about 20 feet off the ground at 4:20 p.m. when the Robinson R22 helicopter’s tail rotor hit the ground. The impact caused it to crash and then roll over onto its side on a grassy area of the airport, the Lincoln Park Police and the FAA said.

Lincoln Park Police Det. Mike Bono did not release the names of the pilot or trainee aboard the helicopter but said neither was injured.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it was investigating the crash Thursday night.
