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.

The operator reported that the pilot was taking a Civil Air Patrol check ride. He was demonstrating a short field landing to a designated spot and tried to stretch the glide of the airplane. This allowed the airspeed to dissipate to the point of stall. The airplane bounced hard on the runway and a go around was executed. After flying to another airport and making a full stop landing, damage to the airplane's firewall and fuselage was discovered.

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

The pilot's failure to maintain airspeed during the landing flare. A factor was the encounter of the stall and subsequent hard landing.
