The pilot of a small plane walked away unscathed after the aircraft crashed into a pond at Pilot Country in Pasco County.
The 1958 Cessna 172 was traveling on the runway at Pilot Country when it landed in a retention pond, according to the Pasco Sheriff’s Office.
There were no other passengers in the plane at the time.

Whether a commercial flight accident or a small plane crash involving a private aircraft, aviation accidents frequently result in very serious injuries and even death. A Pasco County Injury Lawyer at Whittel & Melton has the resources needed to help victims and family members of those harmed in any type of aviation accident.
While there are relatively few commercial aviation accidents reported, millions of people fly on airplanes every year. However, as the number of private aircraft and private flights increases, aviation accidents involving private planes are becoming much more common.
It is important to realize that every aviation accident is investigated by state and federal authorities. The National Transportation Safety Board will usually issue a report of their findings which will conclude what caused the plane crash. These reports are often key pieces of evidence when it comes to a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Most aviation accidents are the result of:
- Pilot Error
- Bad Weather
- Design Defects
- Manufacturing Defects
- Inadequate Aircraft Maintenance
- Air Traffic Controller Error
