Cessna T182T Turbo Skylane, N6203S: Accident occurred May 19, 2017 at Carson Airport (KCXP), Carson City, Nevada

Federal Aviation Administration / Flight Standards District Office; Reno, Nevada

Aviation Accident Factual Report - National Transportation Safety Board:

Investigation Docket - National Transportation Safety Board:

NTSB Identification: GAA17CA291
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Friday, May 19, 2017 in Carson City, NV
Aircraft: CESSNA T182, registration: N6203S
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 pilot reported that he was conducting a night flight to comply with the night takeoff and landing experience requirements specified in Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 61.57 (b). On his second approach the airplane encountered wind shear during the landing flare. The airplane was blown about 40° nose left of the runway centerline. The pilot tried to correct to the right, but the airplane stalled and landed hard. The nose landing gear tire separated from the wheel and the airplane bounced. The airplane settled on the runway and a propeller strike occurred as the airplane slid off the left side of the runway. After the runway excursion, the nose landing gear wheel burrowed into the dirt surface and the airplane nosed over. Substantial damage was sustained to both wings, and the empennage.

The METAR reported that the wind about the time of the accident was from 050° at 8 kts. Critical wind shear or low-level wind shear were not observed at any time during the day or night per the METAR on the date of the accident.

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

CARSON CITY, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) — Nobody is injured after a plane crashed near a runway at the Carson Airport Friday night, according to Sheriff Ken Furlong.

Fire and law enforcement units were on scene, Furlong said in an email, after a single-engine plane crashed in a grass area next to the runway.

An official on scene said one person was inside the plane and is expected to be okay.
