On June 20, 2013, about 1410 eastern daylight time, an Israel Aircraft Industries Gulfstream 200, N500AG, overran the paved portion of the runway during landing at the Chautauqua County/Jamestown Airport (JHW), Jamestown, New York. The two airline transport pilots, two Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspectors, and the aircraft operator's chief pilot were not injured. The airplane sustained minor damage to the trailing edge of the left wing flap. The airplane was registered to a private individual and operated by Taughannock Aviation under the provision of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and an instrument flight rules flight plan had been filed for the instructional flight that originated from the Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC), Rochester, New York, about 1550.
According to written statements by the pilots, earlier in the day the flight departed from the operator's home airport and flew to ROC with the operator's chief pilot in the jumpseat for the purpose of conducting a Part 135.299 checkride. After landing at ROC, the two pilots completed an oral examination with the FAA inspectors, completed a weight and balance, and performance calculations for the practical test portion of their examination. According to the pilot flying, the airplane landed within the touchdown zone of runway 25, about 1,000 feet past the threshold of the 5,299-foot long runway, following a "normal stabilized approach." After touchdown, the pilot flying deployed the thruster reversers and applied steady brake pressure; however, the "braking/stopping ability was nil."
According to an FAA inspector, the airplane came to rest about 40 feet from the end of the paved portion of the runway. During the overrun, the nose wheel and the trailing edge of the left wing flap made contact with two runway end lights, which resulted in minor damage to the flap. According to photographs provided by an FAA inspector, the airplane created a furrow in the soft turf a few inches in depth.
The cockpit voice recorder and enhanced ground proximity warning system were retained for download and further examination.
The recorded weather at JHW, at 1415, indicated calm wind, visibility 10 miles, and clear skies.
