PEMBROKE PINES, Florida (WSVN) - A camera has captured a plane crash at North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines that left a student pilot with minor injuries.

As a small airplane prepared to land at the airport on November 12th, the plane could be seen skidding off the runway and toppling to one side on the grass.

Wayman Aviation Academy, the owners of the aircraft, said the student pilot should have performed a go-around, which means he should have aborted the landing and tried again.

The video shows the plane veering left as it landed on the runway, cutting through the grass, going across a taxiway before its propeller digs into the ground, causing the aircraft to stop abruptly.

The pilot was rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.

He was the only person on board the plane when it skidded off runway 10.

7Skyforce HD hovered over the scene where the plane could be seen resting on its left side.

7News has learned that the student pilot has made a full recovery and has returned to the program where he is learning to become a full-time pilot.

  1. After crash landing checklist: 1) turn off GoPro 2) pull mixture 3) switch fuel valve to off....With stick and rudder skills like that, maybe an instagram gig would be more suitable.

  2. Adjust dreams ... Mesa doesn't look that bad now.

  3. That is called having a Fear syndrome i call "The Panic Pedal Syndrome. He kept pushing the left pedal in fear even when already on left side of runway.. I bet he blames the brakes or the easy to fly Cessna.. They do it but dont know they do. Im a CFI of low emergencies..

  4. Kept pressing the left pedal even when leaving the runway towards hitting the signs..

    Panic Pedal Syndrome clearly seen..

  5. He should have just gone around instead of forcing it. He didn't make any directional adjustments with the rudder near the touchdown!
