Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed. The flight was being conducted under 14 CFR Part 91.

The airplane was departing on runway 07. The pilot stated:

...when I reached liftoff speed-lifted off and the aircraft turned to the right. I could not seem to correct it. The plane ended up on the grass-hit one parked glider and ended up on top of another.
