UPDATE - 4:32PM - Columbia Helicopters tells News 4 Roger Capps was injured during flight operations for a private contractor and is in stable condition.

Columbia Helicopters Spokesman Dan Sweet says the company cannot release the scope of Capps’s injuries.

They also cannot say where in Afghanistan the incident took place because they are contracted through the federal government and releasing that information could compromise sensitive military operations.

Capps' family has been notified of the incident.

RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Roger Capps of Reno working for Columbia Helicopters in Afghanistan was involved in “an incident," according to April Conway with the Air Guard.

The Army National Guard has been notified of the “incident," but because he was working for a private contractor, the military cannot release any information regarding this incident or Capps’ condition.

Capps is a reservist for the Army National Guard and has been deployed before.

He is a CH-47 Chinook Pilot for the Guard.

Maj. Capps is in the Army Guard. The Air Guard flies C130s, not H-47s.
