AAIB investigation to Cessna 182T Skylane, G-LANS

Overran runway while landing and overturned, Bodmin Airfield, Cornwall, 9 December 2017.


The approach was high and fast, and an intermediate flap setting was used to land on a relatively short runway, with a wet grass surface and a net downhill gradient. After touching down, further along the runway than planned, the pilot was unable to halt the aircraft before it overran the prepared surface and overturned onto a roadway. The pilot and his passengers used the doors to exit the aircraft without injury.

The pilot’s licence was issued in July 2015 and, although his Single Engine Piston (SEP) rating had not been re-validated since then, he had maintained regular flying currency.
