P & M Aviation Quik GT450 microlight, G-GTSO


The aircraft was engaged on an instructional flight for a flex-wing pilot who had not flown for about two years. After some general handling, the pilot under training carried out two practice forced landings. During the recovery from the second of these, from a height of about 40 feet agl, the aircraft struck the ground. The instructor reported that power was applied slowly during the manoeuvre and the control bar was pulled, rather than pushed, and he was unable to prevent this control input.
