Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot reported that during his take-off run after approximately 100 meters ground roll, the nose wheel undercarriage collapsed. The propeller and the bottom engine cowling were damaged. The aircraft was recovered by an AMO and flown to their maintenance facility where the aircraft was repaired. Extensive investigation into the collapse of the nose undercarriage did not reveal any particular defect that could cause the nose undercarriage to collapse. Apparently the down lock hooks were slightly worn but not considered as a contributory factor that could have caused the nose undercarriage to collapse. The Electro/Hydraulic systems functioning were also found to be serviceable in all respects. It was also reported that the grass Airstrip was very rough and could be very demanding on a light retractable aircraft's undercarriage. PROBABLE CAUSE: Undetermined.
