Aviation Incident Report: Around 14h45 Central Daylight Time (CDT) on July 4th, 2022, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) unit was advised by Little Grand Rapids, MB (CZGR) Airport Manager of an incident involving a Cessna veering off the main runway. According to a pilot who was in the Airport terminal at the time and witnessed the incident, a Lakeside Aviation Cessna 172M (C-GHXS) “flared” too long while landing and touched down after the main taxiway.

Upon follow up, the passenger has soreness but no further injuries. The pilot declined medical treatment. A statement from the pilot was obtained. The pilot could not explain what went wrong, stated the plane veered after landing at normal speed and with normal brake application. It was initially suspect that the plane may have blown a tire after landing, however, the plane was pulled out of the ditch and the tires appeared to be fine.
