Beech G58 Baron, N525, Baron 58 LLC: Accident occurred November 01, 2016 at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport (KPDK), Atlanta, Georgia

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

NTSB Identification: ERA17CA047
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Tuesday, November 01, 2016 in Atlanta, GA
Probable Cause Approval Date: 08/22/2017
Aircraft: HAWKER BEECHCRAFT CORP G58, registration: N525
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.

According to the commercial pilot, the multiengine airplane was about 5 miles from the airport when it was cleared to land on runway 3R. Then, about 1.5 miles from the airport, he accepted a landing clearance change from the air traffic controller to land on runway 3L instead of 3R. The pilot increased engine power and set up to land on runway 3L; however, the airplane was "fast" on final approach and landed "long." The pilot "stood" on the brakes, the left tire "blew out," and the airplane veered off the left side of the runway. After departing runway 3L, the airplane traveled through the grass and impacted asphalt of another runway, which was raised about 7 inches above the ground. When the nose landing gear struck the asphalt, it collapsed, and the airplane then came to rest. During the accident sequence, the fuselage and wings were substantially damaged. The pilot reported no preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation. The wind at the airport around the time of the accident was from 140°at 7 knots.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The pilot’s failure to maintain the proper airspeed during final approach and his subsequent loss of directional control during landing, which resulted in a runway excursion.

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.

According to the commercial pilot, the multiengine airplane was approximately 5 miles from the airport when it was cleared to land on runway 3R. Then, about 1.5 mile from the airport, he accepted a landing clearance change from the air traffic controller to land on runway 3L instead of 3R. The pilot increased engine power and set up to land on runway 3L; however, the airplane was "fast" on final approach and landed "long." The pilot "stood" on the brakes, the left tire "blew out," and the airplane veered off the left side of the runway. After departing runway 3L, the airplane traveled through the grass, and impacted the asphalt of runway 16, which was raised approximately 7 inches above the ground. When the nose landing gear struck the asphalt, the nose gear collapsed and the airplane came to rest on runway 16. During the accident sequence, the fuselage and wings were substantially damaged. The pilot reported no preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation. The wind at the airport around the time of the accident was from 140° true at 7 knots.
