Pterodactyl Ptraveller, G-MBLN
During a Check Flight for revalidation of a Permit to Fly the aircraft entered a left turn at about 150 feet agl, the angle of bank increased and the nose pitched down; the aircraft then impacted the ground. The manner in which the flight was conducted had caused concern to witnesses before the accident. Investigations revealed that the pilot had made claims of experience to the British Microlight Aircraft Association (BMAA) in order to obtain ongoing qualification as a Check Pilot, that were not substantiated by evidence in his log book.
