No injuries were reported after a plane operated by a student pilot skidded off the runway at Beverly Regional Airport Wednesday afternoon.

Shortly after 4 p.m. on March 24, a male student pilot was attempting to depart from Runway 16-34 and swerved off the runway and into the safety area.

According to airport manager Gloria Bouillon, no one was injured and the aircraft did not sustain any damage.

There were no passengers on board the aircraft at the time of the incident, which is not unusual since students are required to perform solo flights in order to obtain their pilot's licenses.

The airport temporarily suspended operations on the runway while emergency personnel responded to the scene.


Beverly Regional Airport temporarily suspended some of its operations Wednesday afternoon after a student pilot swerved off one of its runways, officials said.

The student pilot was trying to take off from runway 16 when he swerved and went into a safety area, according to a statement from Gloria Bouillon, manager of the airport.

No one was injured, and no damage was done to the aircraft. Nobody else was inside the plane when the student pilot swerved off the runway, the statement said.

The airport temporarily suspended operations on runway 16 for roughly half an hour while mutual aid from the Beverly Police and Fire Departments, airport personnel and the Federal Emergency Management Agency responded out of an abundance of caution, according to the statement.

“As a student pilot works to achieve their pilot’s license, it is a standard practice for the student to perform solo flights as they become more proficient in order to hone their flight skills,” Bouillon said in the statement.

    Yeah well that doesn't mean it is common for a student solo pilot signed of by his/her instructor to go off the runway. I can't wait to hear how many hours he has considering all the KR reports here of career student solo pilots making basic mistakes.
