ARV Super 2 (ARV1), G-TARV
The accident occurred during a takeoff from a private airstrip under light wind conditions. The aircraft struck the edge of a wood and then some power cables. There was no evidence of any mechanical malfunction. Examination of a Pilot Operating Handbook for the aircraft type showed that the airstrip was unsuitable for the operation of the aircraft and, with the existing meteorological conditions, the take-off distance available was less than was required for take-off.
