The Broward Sheriff’s Office reports the plane is a 2013 Beach craft.
Pompano Beach spokeswoman Sandra King says the pilot has 35 years of experience flying planes. He was walking around when firefighters arrived at the scene. Rescue workers took him to Broward Health North as a precaution.

BSO deputies are on scene of a small plane that crashed in an alleyway between NE 3 Ave and Dixie Highway, just northwest of Pompano Air Park just before 6:23 a.m. The pilot escaped uninjured and is reported to be the only person on the plane. The plane apparently knocked down power lines, causing a reported outage in the neighborhood. There is a fuel spill that is being contained by the fire department. No injuries to anyone on the ground.
