Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
After a first flight of two hours and at the end of a second flight of one hour and 30 minutes, the pilot joined the downwind leg of the Pressignac-Vicq Rebeyrotte aerodrome circuit with an intention to land on runway 19 (unpaved). He shortened the airfield circuit, by mistake, by turning prematurely on the base leg in order to avoid flying over a farm. On landing, after two bounces on the runway, he went around again. He completed another aerodrome circuit and again turned prematurely on base leg. In a context of a short final approach, with tailwind, he was not able to stabilize the approach. He pursued it although it had not been stabilized, the speed being excessive, the trajectory offset from the runway axis and above the approach plan. A loss of lucidity possibly due to fatigue accumulated by the day's program may have contributed to the fact that the pilot did not interrupt the approach.

During landing, the plane touched down on the runway approximately 500 meters after the threshold of runway 19, to the left of the axis, deviated to the left then left the runway. The plane collided with the fence on the left side of the runway and then with trees.
