Training for PPL, and goals of heading to the AF.  Solo flight today from GTR near Columbus, MS to Oxford, MS.  18 years old.

A Civil Air Patrol cadet died from serious injuries Saturday afternoon when the plane she was piloting crash-landed on the Ole Miss Golf Course in Oxford, Mississippi.

The accident occurred about 3:15 p.m. on the 17th hole, not far from the University-Oxford Airport where the young woman was headed as part of training to receive her private pilot certificate.

She was airlifted to a Memphis-area trauma center, where she passed away.

“Right now our focus is on the cadet’s family and the members of her local squadron,” said Maj Gen Mark Smith, CAP national commander and CEO. “This is a tragic accident and we are praying for peace and comfort for everyone involved. We are working with the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration to determine what caused the crash.”
