AAIB investigation to Piper PA-28-181, G-TALE

Runway excursion on landing, Blackbushe Airport, 1 November 2014


The aircraft had been high on the approach to land and bounced a number of times. The pilot later discovered that the throttle had jammed slightly open as a result of nose leg damage sustained at some point during the landing. He assessed the cause of the accident as a pilot-induced-oscillation and that he should have initiated a go-around at an early stage.
