On March 23, 2019, about 1130 mountain daylight time, N254PM, a Sky Bolt experimental amateur-built airplane, was substantially damaged during a forced landing after experiencing a loss of engine power about 5 nautical miles west of Deming, New Mexico. The airplane was registered to and operated by a commercial pilot, who was seriously injured during the accident. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the proposed local flight, which was being operated in accordance with Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91, and no flight plan was filed. The flight was originating at the time of the accident.

In a telephone interview with the National Transportation Safety Board investigator-in-charge, the pilot reported that during takeoff/initial climb, the engine completely quit without warning. He then began a turn to the left to return to the airport, however, with insufficient altitude to make it back to the airstrip, he turned back to the right and made a forced landing to an open area. The airplane, which was substantially damaged during the landing sequence, will be recovered to a secured location for future examination.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On March 24, 2019, about 1945 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA-22-150, N1933P, was substantially damaged during a forced landing shortly after takeoff from a private airstrip near Blanch, North Carolina. The private pilot and passenger sustained serious injuries. The airplane was registered to and operated by Caswell Insurance Services Inc. under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the local flight.

According to a witness, shortly after takeoff during the initial climb, the engine lost power, and the airplane turned to return to the airstrip. The airplane descended and impacted an open grass area on the airstrip.

A Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector traveled to the accident site and observed that the airplane impacted an open grass area to the left (southeast) of the takeoff direction. The airplane came to rest upright, with the left wing down; the engine, cowling and both leading edges of the wings displayed aft crushing. The empennage remained intact, and all flight control surfaces were observed. The smell of fuel was present around the accident site. There was no sign of s-bending or chordwise scratches on the propeller.

According to FAA airmen records, the pilot held a private pilot certificate with an airplane single-engine land rating. His most recent third-class medical certificate was issued in March 2013.

At 1940, the nearest weather conditions 20 miles southeast at Person County Airport (TDF) Roxboro, North Carolina, reported wind 200° at 7 knots, visibility 10 statute miles, clear skies, temperature 17°C, dew point 0°C, and barometric pressure of 30.14 inches of mercury.

The wreckage was retained for further examination.

Location: Philadelphia, PA
Accident Number: GAA19CA234
Date & Time: 03/24/2019, 1530 EDT
Registration: N358MN
Aircraft: Cessna T310
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Landing gear not configured
Injuries: 3 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Other Work Use 

The flight instructor in the retractable landing gear, multi-engine airplane reported that, while performing aerial survey training for a newly hired pilot, the airplane was slowed to the mission airspeed of 117 knots, which meant reduced power and the use of more than 15° of flaps. He then pulled the circuit breaker to silence the landing gear warning horn to ensure clear communication, but did not pull the landing gear motor circuit breaker. The pilot receiving instruction reported that he did not know that the instructor had pulled the circuit breaker.

The flight instructor further reported that, while returning to the departure airport, the landing checklist was "accomplished" 15 to 20 miles from the airport. He observed that the pilot was "falling behind on power and descent management" and the airplane was high and fast for the approach. The instructor advised the pilot to correct but then began to assist the pilot when it "was taking longer [than anticipated.]" The airplane decelerated into the white airspeed arc, and the instructor moved the landing gear selector switch into the down position and added full flaps. He added that, since the flaps were added shortly after the landing gear selector switch was put into the down position, he could not tell by the flight characteristics that the landing gear had not extended. Neither he nor the pilot observed that there was no green down and locked position light indicator. The airplane landed with the landing gear retracted.

The flight instructor added that, while configuring the airplane on the runway, he observed that the landing gear warning horn and landing gear motor circuit breakers were tripped.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and both engines.

The director of maintenance reported that, during a postaccident examination, they lifted the airplane onto jacks and performed an emergency gear extension. He added that they then did three electrical landing gear retractions and no defects were found.

In a photo provided by the flight instructor, the landing gear warning horn and landing gear motor circuit breakers are immediately next to each other.

The airplane manufacturer pilot operating handbook contains a note in section titled "Landing Gear Warning Horn", which states,

Do not pull landing gear warning circuit breaker to silence horn as this turns off the landing gear control relay, thus the landing gear cannot be retracted.

Aircraft: CUB CRAFTERS PA18 150
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Loss of engine power (total)
Injuries: 1 Minor, 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal

Analysis

The private pilot stated that the takeoff was uneventful until the airplane reached about 50 ft above ground level and the engine experienced a total loss of power. The engine regained power momentarily, then lost power again. The pilot performed a forced landing during which the airplane impacted a ditch. The pilot reported that fuel selector may not have been secured in the "both" position detent at the time of the takeoff, and as a result, the engine may have lost power due to fuel starvation. A postrecovery examination did not reveal any anomalies that would have precluded normal operation of the airplane.

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot's failure to verify that the fuel selector was properly set before takeoff, which resulted in a total loss of engine power due to fuel starvation.

Findings

Aircraft
Fuel - Fluid management (Cause)

Personnel issues
Use of equip/system - Pilot (Cause)

Factual Information

On March 21, 2018, about 1745 central daylight time, a Cub Crafters PA18-150 airplane, N226JK, experienced a loss of engine power after takeoff from runway 36 (1,800 ft by 50 ft, turf) at the Eagle Creek Airport (51OK), Beggs, Oklahoma. The pilot sustained a minor injury; the passenger was not injured. The airplane was substantially damaged. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed. The flight was not operated on a flight plan. The local flight was originating at the time of the accident.

The pilot stated that the pre-takeoff engine run up was normal. The accident takeoff was uneventful until the airplane reached about 50 ft above ground level when the engine lost power. The engine regained power momentarily, but then lost power again. The pilot executed a forced landing to an open grass area near the approach end of runway 8. The airplane impacted a ditch during the landing which caused the landing gear to collapse.

The airplane came to rest upright. The left wing struts were buckled, and both wings were deformed near midspan. The lower portion of the engine cowling exhibited upward crushing damage. The engine was displaced upward and to the left. The firewall and lower fuselage were deformed. The left side of the fuselage exhibited damage to the structural tubing along the cabin and baggage compartment.

A postrecovery examination of the airframe and engine did not reveal any anomalies consistent with a loss of engine power. A detailed summary of the examination is included in the docket associated with this accident investigation.

The pilot reported that about 30 gallons of fuel were on-board before takeoff. He stated that the fuel selector may not have been fully in the both position detent at the time of the accident takeoff, and as a result, the engine might have lost power due to fuel starvation.
