Incident at PITT MEADOWS BC (CYPK) (Aerodrome, runway or taxiway shutdown)

The nose wheel of a Pacific Rim Aviation Academy Inc. Diamond DA 20-C1 (C-GDDP) from Pitt Meadows, BC (CYPK) to Pitt Meadows, BC (CYPK) fell off during a touch-and-go. Air traffic control (ATC) noticed and advised the pilot. The aircraft circled until emergency vehicles were at the airport and then landed on Runway 26L. All occupants exited the aircraft safely, but the aircraft was disabled on the runway. Other traffic was moved to Runway 26R.
UPDATE: TSB Report #A21P0002: C-GDDP, a Pacific Rim Aviation Academy Diamond DA 20-C1, was conducting circuit training at Pitt Meadows, BC (CYPK) with 1 instructor and 1 student onboard. The lesson was focused on short-field take-offs and soft field landings. During the 5th circuit, the crew observed a small vibration upon touchdown, however, the vibration was minimal due to the back pressure on the flight controls as part of the soft field landing procedure. Once flaps were selected to take-off, the vibration increased slightly and then the aircraft became airborne. On the cross-wind leg, the CYPK tower advised the pilot that the aircraft may have lost the nose wheel. The pilot conducted a "low and over" while the tower confirmed that the nose wheel had departed the aircraft. The aircraft was put into an orbit above CYPK while emergency crews were assembled on the ground and checklists were completed in the aircraft. Approximately 25 minutes later, the aircraft landed. During the landing, the aircraft was operated at a reduced airspeed, with the fuel and magnetos shut off. The front nose gear strut broke off the aircraft and the aircraft slid to a stop on the front lower engine cowl. There were no injuries and no fire.

Aviation Incident Report #17094: At approximately 2110Z, a TrueAirspeed Aviation Inc. Cessna 172H (C-FZMB) from Burlington, ON (CZBA) to Burlington, ON (CZBA) was conducting solo circuits at CZBA. During the first circuit on Runway 32, the pilot did not release the push-to-talk button thus transmitting their comments and blocking the frequency. On their first landing, C-FZMB was observed on final approach at excessive speed and touched down at 3/4 of the length of the runway (3950 feet). During the next circuits, C-FZMB had difficulties conducting landings due to excessive speed. At approximately 2120Z, C-FZMB was observed on final Runway 32 following close behind a Spectrum Airways Cessna 172L on a flight to Burlington, ON (CZBA). On short final, C-FZMB was advised to conduct an overshoot due to C-FEUS trying to clear the runway. C-FZMB did not conduct an overshoot and landed while C-FEUS was still on the runway. C-FZMB refuelled and lined up on Runway 32. Universal communications (UNICOM) advised that the active runway was now Runway 14 and there was an aircraft on final. C-FZMB taxied to Runway 14 and conducted their circuits. On their second circuit Runway 14, C-FZMB attempted to take off with full flaps. The flight school stopped all student solo operations until C-FZMB finished their circuits.
