AAIB investigation to Tanarg/Ixess 15 912S(1), G-IMUP

Moved during ground running and struck vehicles, Dunkeswell Airfield, 5 April 2015.

Summary:

When running the engine to warm it up prior to a flight, the owner-pilot reports that, instead of stopping when he intended to shut it down, the engine ran up to high power and the aircraft started to move. The pilot was unable to hold it on the brakes and the aircraft struck two parked cars before coming to a halt. Relative unfamiliarity with the type of aircraft he had chosen may have been a factor in the accident.
