Unfallbericht:
The Learjet operated on a training flight from São Paulo to Ribeirão Preto where the pilot was to conduct a revalidation of his pilot's license.
The flight crew conducted an NDB approach for a touch and go on runway 18 at Ribeirão Preto Airport. Just before touchdown, the aircraft banked right, causing the right hand wing tip tank to touch the runway. The pilot overcorrected, causing the aircraft to roll to the left to an inverted position. The aircraft impacted the runway and burst into flames.
It appeared that the pilot was used to flying Citation II jets and had very limited experience in Learjet 24D aircraft as copilot. Also, he had not flown for the last four months. The pilot's behavior showed excessive self-confidence, according to investigators.
