Aero AT-3, G-UKAT, 9 May 2010

Aero AT-3, G-UKAT

Summary:

On short finals at North Weald, the pilot initiated a go-around, increasing the throttle setting to full power and raising the flaps to 15º. During the climbout the aircraft entered a turn to the left and headed off the runway centre line by around 45º; the pilot was unable to level the wings and stop the turn to the left. As the aircraft approached tall trees the pilot made a very tight left turn and the stall warning begun to sound at approximately 70 ft agl. The pilot put the aircraft nose down and pulled the throttle to idle, to reduce the turn motion to the left, preventing the crash from being onto parked aircraft.
