The microlight aircraft (MLA) had a crew of two. The pilot had little experience of this MLA, and was being checked out by the owner during a flight from Stadskanaal to Hoogeveen and back. The outward flight went without incident. At around 15:15, after preparing for the return flight to Stadskanaal, the MLA started its take-off run from runway 27 of Hoogeveen airport. The pilot reported that the MLA was bumping along the grass runway, after which he tried to push the stick forward to gain speed.

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