Full Narrative

Quick Launch
NTSB Identification: GAA19CA169
The student pilot reported that following his first solo flight in the pattern, during landing the airplane's nose was pointed to the left of the runway centerline during touchdown and the airplane bounced. The student further reported that the flight school has a "bounce and go" policy, so he applied full throttle and aborted the landing. The airplane continued to the left and the nose landing gear collided with a snow berm on the left side of the runway. The airplane nosed over.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing.

The student pilot reported that there were no mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.
