AAIB investigation to Pioneer 300, G-VOLO
Nose landing gear collapse on landing at Sutton Bank Airfield, Yorkshire on 24 April 2016.
The aircraft touched down normally on the mainwheels. However, shortly after the nosewheel settled, it started to collapse and the propeller struck the ground. It is suspected that the retraction/extension mechanism may have been misrigged or the rigging had changed in service.
