The two men whose bodies were discovered with the wreckage of a small airplane about 20 miles northeast of Scottsdale early Sunday were Prescott residents, according to the owner of an air flight instructional school who employed one of the men.

The men, whose names weren’t released by federal aviation authorities, were graduates of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott and were rated pilots, according to James Dunn, owner of North-Aire, a flight instructional school in Prescott where the pilot of the plane had worked.

The two men left the Scottsdale Airport early Sunday after having dinner with a relative in the Valley, according to Dunn.

The plane left the Scottsdale Airport at 2:15 a.m., and crashed in a mountainous region northeast of Interstate 17 off Table Mesa Road and near New River about 15 minutes after takeoff, according to Ian Gregor, spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.
