From Embry-Riddle newsroom

It is with profound sadness that I must inform you of an aircraft accident today that resulted in the loss of one of our student pilots as well as a passenger who was a designated pilot examiner with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration.

The identities of our student as well as the FAA examiner are not being publicly released at this time, pending notification of family members. Our prayers and deepest sympathies go out to all those affected by this devastating loss.

The cause of the accident, which was reported at 9:54 a.m. on Wednesday, April 4, 2018, near Tomoka Farms Road in Daytona Beach, Fla., has not been determined. Embry-Riddle is cooperating fully with all appropriate law enforcement and regulatory authorities.

We will communicate with you again as soon as we have any additional information.

The Embry-Riddle Counseling Center and the Chaplain’s Office are available to provide support, as needed, for students, faculty and staff.

In conjunction with Anne Botteri, vice president of marketing and communications, we will provide further information as it becomes available.

Sincerely,

P. Barry Butler, Ph.D.

Other reports mention a wing separated from the aircraft. Embry-Riddle is a top notch university.
