On Friday morning, July 16, at approximately 8:40 a.m., an airplane crashed into Abreu Vineyard near Parrett Field Airport in Angwin. 

Henry Wofford, Napa County Sheriff PIO, confirmed three individuals were onboard the plane, though no information about the individuals or their condition has been disclosed at this time.

Parrett Field Airport is on the property of Pacific Union College (PUC) where it was established in March 1961. Jiwoo Yoon, assistant director of the airport flight center, reported that all PUC personnel and aircraft are accounted for.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board will be investigating the plane crash.

“The safety of the pilots and aviation students who use this airport is always a top priority and something we take very seriously here and in our program,” says Gabriel Navarro, flight instructor at PUC.

This story will be updated with any additional details relevant to PUC as they become available.
