The small helicopter-like vehicle crashed about 2:50 p.m. near the runway of the airport, according to a Sheriff's Office Facebook post. Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Christine Christophek said it appeared that the man tried to take off, only made it a few feet off the ground, and crashed on the embankment.

About 15 minutes later, the pilot was flown to a local trauma center, Stabile said. He was unconscious but breathing, and suffered many cuts and abrasions, Christophek said.
