On July 07, 2022, about 1440 Mountain daylight time, a Cessna T210R, N6353U, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Stanley, Idaho. The pilot and three passengers were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 135 on-demand air taxi flight.

The pilot stated that after an uneventful flight, he entered the proximity of the destination airport at about 1,500 feet agl. He noted that the airport’s north windsock indicated a direct crosswind and the south windsock indicated the wind was from the southwest at 10-15 mph. He decided to land on runway 17 and maneuvered the airplane to adjoin the downwind leg of the traffic pattern around midfield.

During the landing phase, he was unable to maintain a stable approach and performed a go-around immediately after touching down. He then made an approach to runway 35 and touched down on the runway surface just past the south windsock (located about 1/3 down the runway). With about 2,300 feet of runway remaining, the pilot immediately applied heavy braking and retracted the wing flaps. The brakes did not respond and he attempted to rapidly depress and release them (pump) several times.

Despite his attempts, the brakes did not function and he was unable to stop the airplane. The airplane continued off the end of the runway, down a hill, and collided with trees.

The airplane had undergone an annual inspection on July 01, 2022, or 6 days prior to the accident. Since that maintenance, he had flown the airplane on three flights, all of which required minimal braking. The airplane was recovered for further examination.
