Avid Flyer C, G-IMPY


Whilst on final approach in light winds with about 50 m to go to the private grass strip, the pilot encountered “rapid sink”. He added power, but too late to prevent contact with the top of the low boundary hedge at the start of the strip, causing the aircraft to land heavily, with little forward speed, just beyond the hedge. Although the aircraft was extensively damaged, the pilot, who was wearing a three-point lap strap and shoulder harness, was uninjured and vacated the aircraft without difficulty.
