Narrative:A student pilot was undergoing a dual check prior to his second solo. Runway 27 was being used; the surface wind was calm and the temperature was 22 degrees C. After a normal landing by the student, the instructor took control when the aircraft had slowed and the flap had been retracted.
Piper PA-38-112 Tomahawk
|Operator:||Truman Aviation Ltd.|
|C/n / msn:|| 38-78A0667|
|Fatalities:||Fatalities: 0 / Occupants: 2|
|Airplane damage:|| Written off (damaged beyond repair)|
|Location:||Nottingham Airport, Tollerton, Nottinghamshire (EGBN) -
|Phase:|| Take off|
The student recalled that the instructor said he would demonstrate a short field take off and the aircraft was brought to a halt. However, the instructor reported that the aircraft was still moving slowly when he applied full power.
The aircraft was rotated into the take-off attitude and the student was immediately aware of the stall warning device sounding; he noted that the indicated airspeed remained steady at about 55 kts. The instructor reported that he saw the engine RPM dropping and immediately carried out the engine failure on take off drill. The student noticed the left wing go down; the instructor said that he had initiated a slight left turn as there was a house ahead of the runway centreline.
The aircraft touched down firmly at the end of the runway and subsequently came to rest in a hedge; both occupants were wearing lap and diagonal upper torso restraint and escaped through the normal exits without injury.
