Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot reported that upon arrival at Eva’s Airfield after 40 minutes of flight time, he selected the flaps to 40 degrees in preparation for landing on the grass-covered Runway 17, which is 700 metres long with an uphill slope. According to the pilot, the approach was into the wind at a speed of approximately 70 knots. However, about 300 metres into the runway, the aircraft floated and on touch down, it bounced. The pilot instantly opened the throttle to 2 400 (red line) RPM to initiate a go around, but the aircraft did not climb as expected. The aircraft entered an uncontrolled descent and impacted the runway heavily with its landing gears and continued to roll at a maximum speed. The aircraft rolled past the runway threshold and collided with the airstrip perimeter fence before it came to a stop on the grass.
