It was reported that the student was doing circuits training on Runway 35 at FAGM. during a climb he heard a bump on the right wing and assumed it was a bird strike. He elected to land back on the take-off runway and after shutting down they inspected the aircraft and noticed a dent of the right wing but there was no evidence that it was a bird strike. Later that day pilots from another flying school reported drone activity in the area where the pilot had operated earlier during the day. No injuries and minor damage.
