The pilot started the takeoff roll. Just before rotation, the seat slid backwards. The pilot lost directional control of the airplane, and the airplane collided with an embankment. Examination of the seat tracks revealed no elongation of the seat track holes. The Before Starting The Engine checklist states, "Seats and Seat belts-Adjust and lock."
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to follow the checklist, resulting in a loss of directional control on the takeoff roll when the seat moved rearward, and on ground collision with an embankment.
