Détails:
The pilot was performing a GPS runway 14 approach to Greenville, and descended below the minimum descent altitude when he believed he had the runway environment in sight. When the pilot realized he was not near the runway, he added full power and attempted to climb; however, the airplane struck rising terrain about 2 miles northwest of the airport. The airport was located at an elevation of 1,400 feet, and the airplane impacted terrain at an elevation of approximately 1,200 feet. According to the GPS runway 14 approach procedure, the minimum descent altitude was 2,300 feet.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's improper in-flight decision to continue his descent without visual contact with the runway, and his inattention to his altitude, in relation to the airport elevation."
