AAIB investigation to Piper PA-38-112 Tomahawk, G-BMVM

Overran runway on takeoff, Brimpton Airfield, Berkshire, 14 June 2017.


While taking off from Runway 25 at Brimpton Airfield the aircraft did not accelerate sufficiently to achieve takeoff speed and overran the end of the runway. The pilot considered that the variable wind conditions may have led to a tailwind component, resulting in a required takeoff distance greater than that which was available.
