Officials say the instructor, Arian Prevalla, was released from the burn unit at Bridgeport Hospital late last week after being treated for third-degree burns to 17 percent of his body.
Authorities said the student pilot was disgruntled about his flight training and crashed the plane while Prevalla struggled to gain control of the aircraft.
The student, Feras Freitekh, was a citizen of Jordan who moved to Hartford in 2013 to study at the American Flight Academy.
