Breezer B600, G-OLSA

Summary:

Shortly after takeoff the engine stopped due to a loss of fuel pressure and the pilot made a forced landing which resulted in a heavy touchdown. The engine stoppage was probably caused by a fuel restriction when a placard blocked the fuel tank outlet. The fuel tank outlet was not fitted with a strainer or filter as none was required by the regulations for a ‘Light Sport Aeroplane’ (LSA). The aircraft manufacturer has taken safety action to install a fuel strainer at the fuel tank outlet of all new aircraft and is offering the same modification for retrofit. Two Safety Recommendations are made.
