Defining Event: Loss of control on ground

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional 


The flight instructor reported that, while the student pilot was practicing soft-field takeoffs, the student added full power and maintained back pressure. He told the student to add right rudder, but the airplane veered left. The instructor told the student to add right rudder again, then the student abruptly added right rudder. The airplane veered right, the instructor attempted to correct, but the airplane exited the runway to the right, and the right wing and right horizontal stabilizer impacted the ground.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the right wing and right horizontal stabilizer.

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

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The student pilot's excessive rudder application during takeoff and the flight instructor's delayed remedial action, which resulted in a loss of directional control, a runway excursion, and subsequent substantial damage.


Directional control - Not attained/maintained (Cause)
Rudder control system - Incorrect use/operation (Cause)

Personnel issues
Aircraft control - Student pilot (Cause)
Delayed action - Instructor/check pilot (Cause)
Use of equip/system - Student pilot (Cause)

A small plane crashed Saturday afternoon while taking off from Kissimmee Gateway Airport, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

A Cessna 172 plane with three people on board crashed into the grass at the end of Runway 15 while taking off shortly before 1 p.m., FAA spokesman Rick Breitenfeldt said.

The plane crashed while performing a “touch-and-go” maneuver, in which an aircraft lands on a runway and takes off again without coming to a stop, according to a notice posted on the airport’s website. The press release said the three passengers, one instructor and two students, left the aircraft uninjured.

The airport remains operational, according to the notice.

The airport is in the western part of the city, just south of Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway and Hoagland Boulevard.

The FAA will investigate the crash.
