Pegasus Quantum 15, G-CCRT


The student pilot was completing a solo circuit during which it was observed that the wind had become gusty and variable. As the pilot was about to flare for the landing, the aircraft climbed approximately 15 ft. The pilot reacted by lowering the nose but the left wing then lifted, banking the aircraft in excess of 60° and turning it right. The pilot levelled the wings and was about to go around when the aircraft impacted the runway and skidded off to the side into the perimeter fence. The pilot, who was wearing a protective helmet and lap strap, was unhurt.
