Heavy landing, Socata TB9, 15 July 2016 Teuge Airport


The pilot and his passenger were conducting a private VFR flight from Lydd Airport to Teuge Airport. The pilot reported that he carried out a normal approach to runway 26 at Teuge Airport with an approach speed of 65 knots and full flaps and all looked normal. The wind was from 230˚ at 7 knots. During landing he felt a significant bump and noticed a crack appear across the windscreen. The aircraft veered to the left, which he corrected with the rudder. He then taxied to the parking in front of the tower and shut down the aircraft. The pilot was not injured. On exiting the aircraft he noticed damage to the aircraft.

The report can be found in the Quarterly Report Aviation for the third quarter of 2016.
