AAIB investigation to Pegasus Quik, G-CGLW

Loss of control on landing, Old Park Farm Airfield, Port Talbot, West Glamorgan, 18 June 2017.

Summary:

As the aircraft turned final for Runway 36 in a light westerly wind, the pilot considered he was too high so steepened the approach. The aircraft bounced on touchdown before becoming airborne again for approximately 100 m. The pilot decided to go around by applying full power but the aircraft slewed left into some crops.

The pilot was wearing a lap and diagonal harness and helmet but sustained a serious injury.
