NTSB investigators used data provided by various sources and may not have traveled in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft incident report.
On April 26, 2014, about 1130 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 525B (Citation CJ3), N300ET, operated by a private individual, sustained minor damage during a runway overrun, while landing at the Spruce Creek Airport (7FL6), Port Orange, Florida. The airline transport pilot and two passengers were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and an instrument flight rules flight plan had been filed for the flight that departed the Opa-Locka Executive Airport (OPF), Miami, Florida. The personal flight was conducted under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.
According to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) records, the airplane was owned by the pilot through a limited-liability-company.
According to an FAA inspector, the pilot performed a visual approach to runway 23, a 4,000-foot-long, 176-foot-wide, asphalt runway. The pilot reported that he landed "long" and then realized that he was not going to be able to stop on the remaining runway. He considered performing a go-around; however, he believed that a go-around would have posed a greater hazard at that point in the landing. The airplane subsequently rolled off the end of the runway, through grass, and came to rest in a freshwater pond, about 600 feet from the end of the runway.
One of the passengers, who was also a private pilot, reported that the airplane remained airborne as it flew past "the numbers," and touched down about one-third down the runway.
Initial examination of the airplane revealed minor damage to the landing gear, wings, and flaps. The airplane was equipped with a Fairchild FA2100 series cockpit voice recorder, which was forwarded to the NTSB's Vehicle Recorder Division, Washington, DC.
A weather observation taken at the airport at 1155 included winds from 030 degrees at 4 knots.
