On January 17, 2013, about 1740 Pacific standard time, a Cessna 172RG, N6290V, landed gear-up with the left main landing gear partially extended, at Roberts Field, Redmond, Oregon. Professional Air was operating the airplane under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The flight instructor (CFI) and pilot undergoing instruction were not injured. The airplane sustained substantial damage. The instructional flight departed Bend Municipal Airport, Bend, Oregon, about 1515. Night visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan had been filed.
During the landing approach into Bend, the pilot undergoing instruction was unable to fully extend the left main landing gear. After multiple unsuccessful troubleshooting attempts, the CFI elected to divert to Redmond, and perform a partial gear-up landing. During the landing roll, the airplane sustained substantial damage to the belly structure. Postaccident examination revealed that the left landing gear bushing had broken free of its sector gear within the actuator.
