Aviation Accident Final Report - National Transportation Safety Board: https://app.ntsb.gov/pdf

NTSB Identification: ERA17CA162
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Thursday, April 20, 2017 in Leonardtown, MD
Probable Cause Approval Date: 09/07/2017
Aircraft: CUB CRAFTERS INC CC11 100, registration: N749KY
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 private pilot, who was also the owner of the tailwheel-equipped airplane, was landing after a local flight. The pilot stated that the airplane bounced during touchdown and that he attempted a go-around, but the airplane veered to the left, which resulted in a ground loop. During the ground loop, the airplane’s right wing impacted runway lighting and sustained substantial damage. The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical anomalies 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 improper landing flare, which resulted in a bounced landing, and his subsequent failure to maintain directional control when he initiated a go-around.
