AAIB investigation to Robin R2160, G-OCFC
Runway excursion during abandoned takeoff at Bodmin Airfield on 27 May 2015.
The aircraft was about halfway along the runway during its takeoff roll when the instructor sensed that it was no longer accelerating. He abandoned the takeoff but could not prevent the aircraft from over-running the end of the runway. A change in wind direction and inadvertent use of brakes by the student may have been causal factors.
