NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

According to the flight instructor, the student "flared high (about 15-20 feet) and the stall horn came on." The student attempted to recover by adding power and lowering the nose; however, the airplane impacted the runway "flat and hard, bouncing into the air," causing substantial damage. The flight instructor took control at this time and landed the airplane.

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

the dual student's high flare resulting in an inadvertent stall/mush and a hard landing. A factor contributing to the accident was the flight instructor's inadequate supervision.
