Pegasus Quik, G-CDAX
The aircraft was taking off on Runway 03 in good weather conditions, with 15 kt of wind down the runway. Immediately after the pilot thought he was airborne it started to yaw to the right. The pilot tried to turn the aircraft back onto its initial heading but it rolled onto its right side and slid along the runway before coming to rest. The pilot exited the aircraft uninjured and there was no fire. After examining the ground marks left by the wheels, the pilot considered that the accident occurred because the right main wheel had been in contact with the surface when he thought that the aircraft was clear of the ground. This had yawed the aircraft to the right.
