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 pilot reported that, during the landing, as the nosewheel touched down, the airplane “hopped a bit” and began to veer left. He applied right rudder and brakes to no avail. He released the rudder and brakes, and the airplane exited the left side of the runway and impacted a raised taxiway.
The airplane sustained substantial damage to the right wing.
The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
  • The pilot’s improper landing flare and subsequent failure to maintain directional control during the landing.
