Authorities have identified a CT flight instructor and co-pilot who was killed in a small plane crash that injured two other people, including the student pilot who had been flying.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane, a Cessna 172, departed Danbury Municipal Airport around 8:30 a.m. and crashed about an hour later in a grassy area a quarter-mile from the New Milford runway.

According to police, this was a student flight with three people on board. Police said she was extricated from the plane and taken to Hartford Hospital. The co-pilot was also trapped and was presumed dead.

The other injured passenger who went to get help was taken to Danbury Hospital.

Grabner said the man who died was the flight instructor. The plane was owned by Arrow Aviation of Danbury. Police say a juvenile female was flying the plane when it crashed.
