Narrative:An Embraer 505 Phenom 300 corporate jet was damaged following a runway excursion accident at St. Gallen-Altenrhein Airport (ACH), Switzerland. All three on board survived.
The jet departed Genève-Cointrin Airport (GVA) about 15:00 on a flight to St. Gallen. It landed on runway 10 but overshot the runway, broke through a fence and came to standstill in a field.
The accident is attributable to the fact that the aircraft touched down late and at an excessively high speed on the wet runway after an unstabilised final approach and consequently rolled over the end of the runway.
The following factors contributed to the accident:
- The insufficient teamwork and deficient situation analysis by the crew.
- The flaps remained jammed at approximately 10 degrees, a position that is almost consistent with the flaps 1 position.
- Late initiation of full brake application after landing.
