Glider lands on north Scottsdale golf course, no injuries reported

No one was injured after a glider landed on a Scottsdale golf course Thursday afternoon.

Fire crews said the aircraft is on its wheels and landed on the 15th-hole fairway at the Estancia golf course near Pima Road and Dynamite Boulevard.

The pilot was the only person on board the glider.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board have been notified. According to officials with the Scottsdale Fire Department, there was no sign of engine failure on the glider.

"It looks like the motor glider will be totally fixable, so it was a great outcome," said Russ Hustead, a certified flight instructor and owner of Sky King Soaring.

According to Hustead, the glider involved in the accident is a Stemme S12. Hustead also said he knows the pilot involved. He describes the pilot as a commercial pilot who flies in competitions, and is highly skilled.
