PHOENIX (AP) --  A pilot practicing touch-and-go maneuvers and his two passengers have walked away from the crash of a small plane at Deer Valley Airport near 7th Street and Deer Valley Road.

Authorities say three men from TransPac Aviation Academy were aboard the single-engine Piper PA 28 when it crashed and caught fire around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday on the airport's east end.

One man needed treatment for burns to an arm, but the other two men weren't injured. Their names haven't been released.
 
Federal Aviation Administration officials say the cause of the crash involving an instructional flight is under investigation.
 
Phoenix police say the plane was taking off when it lost power for some reason and crashed.
 
A second small plane later had a hard landing at the same airport, but there were no reported injuries.
