Officials are expected in Adams County to investigate a plane that skidded off the runway on Thursday at Front Range Airport.

Jim Siedlecki, a spokesman for Adams County, said there are no reported injuries.

The pilot of the plane was a student at the airport's flight school who was practicing touch-and-go landings.

The student pilot "felt what he described as a 'departure stall' on an attempted take-off," according to a news release from Adams County.

The student pilot had logged 30 hours of flight experience.

NTSB Identification: CEN11CA519
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Tuesday, July 26, 2011 in Colorado Springs, CO
Probable Cause Approval Date: 11/29/2011
Aircraft: AERO SP Z O O AT-4 LSA, registration: N1277K
Injuries: 1 Uninjured.

NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The student pilot was attempting to land when the airplane's descent rate increased, resulting in a hard landing and a bounce. The airplane nosed over prior to the touchdown, allowing the propeller to strike the runway and causing the nose landing gear to buckle and collapse before the airplane skidded to a stop. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the firewall. A postaccident examination did not reveal any anomalies with the airplane that would have prevented normal operation.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The pilot's failure to maintain proper approach speed and his inadequate recovery from a bounced landing.
