Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional 

On May 26, 2018, about 0935 Pacific daylight time, a Cessna 152 airplane, N152GB, was substantially damaged during a forced landing following a partial loss of engine power while performing a go around at the Hillsboro-Portland Airport (HIO), Hillsboro, Oregon. The certified flight instructor and student pilot receiving instruction were not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by Hillsboro Aero Academy LLC. under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as an instructional flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed. The local flight originated from HIO at 15 minutes before the accident.

The flight instructor reported that during their third touch-and-go landing on runway 31R, the student pilot initiated a go-around. Shortly after applying power, the engine began to run rough, backfire, and partially lose power. The flight instructor verified that the mixture was rich and that the carburetor heat was off. Unable to restore full engine power, the flight instructor initiated a forced landing to the remaining portion of the runway. During the landing roll, the airplane overran the departure end of runway 31R and nosed over.

Post-accident examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that both wings were structurally damaged. The airplane was recovered to a secure location for further examination.
