The pilot of C-GVPL, a Piper Cherokee, was on a local sightseeing flight in the Hinton area. Upon return to the airport, the pilot followed a Cessna 206 that was using Runway 04.

The aircraft ran off the end and to the left of the runway and the aircraft contacted rocks which substantially damaged the propeller and bent the nosegear as well as an engine mount. The pilot and his passenger(wife) were uninjured. The pilot had not been flying for about 4 years and had just completed 4 to 5 hours of dual training with the owners of the aircraft.
