THE CERTIFICATED PRIVATE PILOT WAS RECEIVING AN AIRPLANE MAKE AND MODEL COMPANY CHECK-OUT FROM A CERTIFIED FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR (CFI). WHILE EXECUTING A NO FLAP APPROACH THE CFI FAILED TO ADEQUATELY SUPERVISE THE FLIGHT BY FAILING TO MONITOR THE AIRSPEED. THE PRIVATE PILOT FAILED TO MAINTAIN THE AIRSPEED TO THE POINT THAT THE AIRPLANE STALLED AND LANDED HARD.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

THE FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR'S INADEQUATE SUPERVISION OF THE FLIGHT AND THE PRIVATE PILOT'S FAILURE TO MAINTAIN AIRSPEED. CONTRIBUTING TO THIS ACCIDENT WAS THE FAILURE OF THE MAIN LANDING GEAR DUE TO OVERLOAD.
