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 was practicing takeoffs and landings; on the fourth landing roll, while at an airspeed of about 30 miles per hour, the airplane veered to the left. The airplane departed the runway surface at a 90-degree angle, and the right wing sustained substantial damage when it contacted the terrain. The airplane made a 360-degree turn in the grass before it returned to the runway. The pilot reported the airplane had a tendency to swerve on the ground, especially on hot days with little to no wind. The wind at the time of the accident was reported as calm. The pilot reported that there was no mechanical failure or malfunction of the airplane that would have resulted in the loss of control.

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

The pilot's failure to maintain directional control of the airplane during the landing roll.
