AAIB investigation to Reims Cessna F172P Skyhawk, G-SBAE

Reims Cessna F172P (G-SBAE), propeller strike during landing, Blackpool Airport, 6 August 2014.


The pilot was practising circuits. His approach for a planned touch-and-go appeared normal, but on touchdown the aircraft bounced twice before the nosewheel touched firmly and the propeller struck the runway. The pilot considered that he should have initiated a go-around after the first bounce.
