PEMBROKE PINES, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – Love was in the air for one Florida pilot, who kissed the tarmac after safely landing a small airplane with landing gear troubles.
The man was an instructor for Wayman Aviation and was giving a lesson to a commercial pilot training to become an instructor.
Citing company policy, flight school officials declined to release the pilots’ names, the Sun Sentinel reported.
The two men were more than thrilled to be back and unharmed on terra firma around 9 a.m. at North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines, after the nose gear of their Piper PA-28 collapsed on the runway.
The Federal Aviation Administration is conducting an investigation into the incident.
Eddy Luy, vice president of the flight school, told the Sentinel that the pilot of the single-engine aircraft is a master certified flight instructor who has worked for Wayman Aviation for over five years.
