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 solo student pilot in the tailwheel-equipped airplane reported that his intent was to accomplish a three-point landing. During the landing flare, the airspeed decreased, and just prior to touch down, he applied aft yoke pressure to pin the tailwheel on the runway. As the main landing gear touched down, the airplane veered left, exited the left side of the runway and collided with taxiway signage.
