AAIB investigation to Europa XS, G-GBXS Correction

Loss of control in flight, Common Farm Airstrip, Leicestershire, 21 August 2013.


The evidence suggested that the pilot was performing a low-level circuit to land back at the farm strip from which he had just departed, most likely in response to an engine problem. Control was lost during the base turn and the aircraft struck the ground in a steep nose-down attitude, fatally injuring the pilot and passenger.
