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 student pilot reported that, during the first solo landing, the glider was “not straight” for the flare, and she attempted to correct with right rudder. Subsequently, she overcorrected, and the glider veered right and struck a hangar.
The glider sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and both wings.
The student pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the glider that would have precluded normal operation.
