Accident occurred Friday, June 07, 2013 in Chiloquin, OR

NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The pilot reported that, as the airplane neared the destination airport, he maneuvered the airplane on a higher-than-normal approach to avoid tall trees located on the runway’s approach path. The airplane touched down at an excessive ground speed and began to veer left. The pilot attempted to regain directional control with rudder control and brakes, but the airplane continued off the left edge of the runway, impacted a culvert, nosed over, and then came to rest inverted. A postaccident examination of the airplane revealed no evidence of preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal operation.

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

The pilot’s unstabilized approach and use of an excessive speed at touchdown, which resulted in a loss of directional control during the landing and a subsequent runway excursion.
