Analysis

The pilot reported that he configured the airplane to land with a right crosswind and was aligned with runway centerline. As the airplane was about to touchdown, the airspeed decreased, and the pilot felt a gust of wind push the airplane to the left as it touched down and began the landing roll. The pilot corrected with right rudder control and aileron input; however, the airplane continued to the left and exited the runway surface and struck a fence. The horizontal stabilizer was substantially damaged. The pilot reported no mechanical anomalies 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 pilot’s failure to maintain directional control during a crosswind landing.

Findings

Aircraft Directional control - Not attained/maintained
Personnel issues Aircraft control - Pilot
Environmental issues Gusts - Response/compensation
