IN­SPEC­TORS from the Civil Avi­a­tion Author­ity of Fiji (CAAF) flew to Ka­davu yes­ter­day to in­ves­ti­gate an in­ci­dent where a Pa­cific Fly­ing School Cessna 172 plane went off the run­way while land­ing at the Vu­nisea Air­port.

Pa­cific Fly­ing School di­rec­tor Tim Joyce said no in­juries were sus­tained by the trainer or the two trainee pi­lots.

“I can con­firm there was a land­ing in­ci­dent and the plane went just off run­way,” he said.

“They were down there for train­ing pur­poses,” he said.

Mr Joyce said they had in­formed CAAF, as re­quired by the law.

Fiji Air­ports (FA) con­firmed the Cessna 172 air­craft veered off the run­way.

“There were no in­juries, how­ever, the air­craft sus­tained dam­ages,” said a spokesper­son.

FA said the in­ci­dent had been re­ported to CAAF for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
