A small plane crashed Saturday afternoon near Horseshoe Lake, federal officials said.
Two people aboard the aircraft were not injured, according to Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.
A helicopter crew from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office spotted the crash and airlifted the two people in the crash to the Scottsdale Airport about 6 p.m., said Yavapai County sheriff’s spokesman Dwight Develyn.
The single-engine Aviat A-1C-200 crashed sometime before 4:40 p.m. under unknown circumstances in a dirt strip in Yavapai Hills, Gregor said.
Develyn said Yavapai County crews could not access the location by ground and will fly there Sunday morning. He was awaiting further information from the MCSO.
The airplane was registered to Aaron Bartrim, of Scottsdale, according to the FAA website.
