The Investigation team of the Interstate Aviation Committee has completed the investigation of the accident with "Skycruiser" RA-1451G single-built aircraft, which occurred at Zmeyovo landing site,Tver (RF) on July, 6 2014.
The most probable cause of the aviation accident with "Skucruiser" RA-1451G single-built aircraft was the PIC's wrong actions on correction of deviation in approach procedure calculations that resulted in loading on front wheel exceeding the limit, to the wheel breakoff during the repeated landing and following aircraft nosing-over.
Contributing factors, most probably, were:
- wrong attention allocation of PIC during landing;
- neglecting the aircraft behavior features connected with lowering of nose landing gear after landing;
- position of the sun shining to the pilot's eyes, that didn't allow to determine the level-off altitude during the landing on unpaved RWY with grass surface.
The appropriate safety recommendations based on the investigation results were developed
