Loss of control during landing phase when practicing touch and goes.

The Transport Accident Investigation Board is of the opinion that the approach was not stable before the contact landing and the flight speed at the end of the approach was too low. The pilot's description that the aircraft suddenly fell from a height of only 2-3 meters above the runway indicates that the aircraft crashed and subsequently crashed into the runway with the tail first.
The Transport Accident Investigation Board also believes that the tail was so badly damaged when it hit the runway that the rudder and rudder did not work properly. As a result, the fish plane traveled uncontrollably off the runway.
