Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The student pilot started a solo flight at 09:30 h, with a planned duration of 2 hours, to navigate around the island of Mallorca.
During the landing maneuver, after contacting the runway, the aircraft bounced and went into the air again, contacting the runway again with the nose gear, which collapsed, consequently causing a propstrike. The aircraft traveled about 200 meters until it came to a stop inside the runway.
Two propeller blades were detached and the third was also damaged, as well as the nose gear, which gave way and folded backwards. The runway surface was left with some deep scratches and several contact marks with metal parts. The pilot was unharmed.

Causes/contributing factors
It is considered that the cause of this accident was the incorrect execution of the aircraft recovery maneuver, during several bounces down the runway, which ended with the collapse of the nose leg.
