NTSB investigators may have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

During a touch and go landing on a local area personal flight, the pilot was given a 'short' approach to runway 29L (9,000 feet long and 100 feet wide). The final approach was high and fast and the aircraft landed hard and bounced several times with the bounces becoming divergent. During this evolution, the nose landing gear and firewall sustained damage. Weather at the time of the accident was scattered clouds, wind from 200 degrees at 10 knots and a temperature of 93 degrees. Density altitude was calculated to be 9,300 feet. The pilot had 144 hours total flight time, 7 hours in the accident aircraft make and model, and his flight time in the accident aircraft make and model was all accumulated in the 30 day period preceding the accident.

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

The pilot's inaccurate recovery from a bounced landing. Factors were lack of total pilot experience and lack of pilot experience in aircraft make and model.
