Pilot Killed in Small Plane Crash near Pickens County Airport

A single-engine Piper Tomahawk aircraft crashed near the Pickens County airport, Jasper, Georgia, on October 8.

The incident happened when the plane, carrying a student pilot, was attempting touch-and-go landings at the airport.

The pilot Michael Joseph Hughes, of Blairsville, was killed in the crash.

According to National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Investigator Todd Gunther, “The airplane was then observed to go into what someone described as an aerodynamic stall, the nose pitched down and the airplane appeared to spin to the left until it disappeared behind trees.”
