On October 22, 2021, at 1750 eastern daylight time, an Embraer EMB-500, N925DR was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident in Orlando, Florida. The airline transport pilot and three passengers were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot, the airplane completed a stable RNAV/GPS 36L approach to a “smooth” landing at Orlando International Airport (MCO). He had lowered a wing and was using the rudder to compensate for a crosswind, and after touchdown, “only the right brake activated,” and the nose went to the right. He then released the brakes, “steered back toward centerline” but the airplane “came aggressively” back to its left. The pilot decided to complete the rollout under control in the grass, rather than risk over-controlling the airplane to remain on the runway because he feared the airplane would roll inverted.

The airplane continued off the left side of the runway, struck a sign, dragged and substantially damaged the right wing, before it came to rest upright facing perpendicular to the landing runway.

The pilot reported that he had 26,000 total hours of flight experience, of which 80 hours were in the accident airplane make and model.

Examination of the airplane’s maintenance records revealed its most recent inspection within its continuous airworthiness program was completed October 17, 2021, at 1,767.3 total aircraft hours.

The airplane’s combination cockpit voice recorder/flight data recorder and components and modules of the braking system were retained for further examination.

The wind reported at the time of the accident was from 090° at 12 knots, gusting to 16 knots.
