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 pilot stated that he was on short final when he noticed a higher-than-anticipated sink rate developing, so he added power. About 100 feet from the runway he became distracted by the stall warning light; the airplane landed short of the runway, bounced and struck the propeller before coming to a rest on the runway. Postaccident examination of the airplane revealed a bent firewall. The pilot indicated there was nothing wrong with the airplane prior to the accident.

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

The pilot's failure to maintain a proper descent rate during the approach to land.
