14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Thursday, April 06, 2017 in Granby, CO
Probable Cause Approval Date: 07/05/2017
Aircraft: CESSNA P210, registration: N829BA
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 reported that, during his first approach to land, he performed a go-around due to excess speed on final approach. He added that he retracted the landing gear and flaps and remained in the traffic pattern. During the second landing, he extended the flaps and reduced power for a normal landing, but during the landing flare, he heard the propeller strike the runway, and the airplane skidded to a stop. The pilot reported that he “simply forgot to check if the [landing] gear was down on the second landing attempt.” 

The fuselage sustained substantial damage.

The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The pilot's failure to extend the landing gear before landing.
