Cessna 182A Skylane, N5011D, Rocky Teton LLC: Accident occurred June 02, 2017 at Whitewater Ranch Airstrip, Boise, Ada County, Idaho

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

NTSB Identification: GAA17CA320
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Friday, June 02, 2017 in Elk City, ID
Probable Cause Approval Date: 09/07/2017
Aircraft: CESSNA 182, registration: N5011D
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 the landing, while over the threshold of the airstrip, he aerodynamically stalled the airplane. He added that the airplane touched down and bounced and then drifted left and bounced again while exiting the airstrip. Subsequently, the left wing hit a tree, and the airplane came to rest nose down.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and left wing.

The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions 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 maintain adequate airspeed and his exceedance of the wing’s angle of attack while on short final, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall.

Additional Participating Entity:
Federal Aviation Administration / Flight Standards District Office; Spokane, Washington
