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 pilot, his original intent was to start, run-up, and then taxi his airplane on the day of the accident. At the completion of the run-up, the pilot taxied the airplane onto the active runway for a "fast taxi" and applied full engine power. The airplane achieved takeoff speed, the pilot pulled back on the control yoke, and the airplane lifted from the runway. The pilot then aborted the takeoff and lost directional control as the airplane touched down on the runway. The airplane impacted a fence, resulting in substantial damage to the wings. The pilot reported that there were no mechanical deficiencies with the airplane.

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

The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during the aborted takeoff.
