🕐 1 min read

DENTON, Texas (AP) — A flight instructor and a student pilot were injured after their helicopter crashed into trees in Denton.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman confirmed a helicopter crashed Wednesday afternoon, and that the agency is investigating to determine the cause. The helicopter is owned by Longhorn Helicopters Inc., a flight school out of the Denton Enterprise Airport.

Denton police spokesman Orlando Hinojosa says officers responded to a call about a helicopter that crashed in a wooded area by Robson Ranch that is close to a local airport.

The 25-year-old female instructor was flown to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton with a broken arm. A 23-year-old male student pilot was flown to The Medical Center of Plano for treatment of a lower back injury.

Hinojosa said both victims’ injuries are not life threatening.
