National Transportation Safety Board - Aviation Accident Factual Report: http://app.ntsb.gov/pdf 

EASTERN CINCINNATI AVIATION INC: http://registry.faa.gov/N526TC

NTSB Identification: GAA16CA391

14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Wednesday, July 20, 2016 in Blanchester, OH
Aircraft: DIAMOND AIRCRAFT IND GMBH HK 36, registration: N526TC
Injuries: 2 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 pilot of a powered glider reported that during the landing roll on a narrow grass airstrip, the glider veered to the left of centerline. He attempted to correct for the veer with right rudder input, but was unsuccessful. The left main landing gear traveled over a slope in the runway [crown for drainage purposes] and the left wing impacted corn stalks. The glider spun to the left and slid down the drainage area into the corn field.

The glider sustained substantial damage to the fuselage.

The pilot reported no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the powered glider that would have precluded normal operation.
