Aeroprakt A22-L Foxbat, G-NJTC
The aircraft veered to the left shortly after becoming airborne from Runway 36 at Glassonby Airfield. Despite the application of full right rudder, the pilot was unable to regain control of the aircraft and he decided to abort the takeoff at a height of approximately 6 ft above the ground. The aircraft touched down to the side of the runway, sustaining damage to its propeller, nose gear and engine. The pilot and passenger were uninjured. The aircraft was subsequently inspected by an engineer experienced on this type of aircraft; no defects were found that could have contributed to the accident.
