The PS-28, registration EC-NAO, took off from Burgos Airport - LEBG to Valladolid Airport - LEVD, with the intention of performing a training flight alone. During the landing manoeuvre on runway 23, the aircraft experienced abnormal contact with the runway, causing the nose gear to break and dragging the nose of the aircraft along the runway until it stopped.
The student pilot was unharmed and the aircraft suffered damage to the propeller, nose gear and nose of the aircraft.

The investigation has determined the accident was caused by a poorly executed landing,which resulted in the nose gear impacting the runway several times, causing it to collapse.
A failure to adhere to the approach and landing procedures is considered to have been a contributing factor.
