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 purpose of the flight was for the student pilot to practice takeoffs and landings. The student was performing a soft field takeoff when the accident occurred. The student applied aft control pressure and added power for takeoff. Once airborne, the airplane drifted to the right. The student corrected and the airplane drifted to the left. The instructor then took control of the airplane. He lowered the nose to gain airspeed and the left gear contacted the runway and collapsed. The instructor stated he then overcorrected to the right and the right wing contacted the ground. The airplane settled to the ground off the right side of the runway and spun to the left prior to coming to rest. The airplane received substantial damage to the aft fuselage.

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

The instructor pilot's failure to regain control of the airplane following the student pilot's initial loss of control of the airplane.
