Quik GT450, G-CEGV


While landing on a wet grass runway, the microlight veered to the right and entered a field of crops. The nosewheel dug in to the soft ground and the aircraft rolled onto its right side. The pilot, who was uninjured, was converting from three-axis to flex-wing aircraft and believed that he applied too much force to the brakes and, in doing so, may have turned the nosewheel to the right. The pilot’s flying instructor was watching the landing and stated that the approach, flare and touchdown appeared normal and that it was only after the aircraft was fully on the ground that it veered to the right.
