Narrative:
The aircraft, with a solo Student Pilot on board, was carrying out a cross-country navigation exercise from Waterford Airport (EIWF), via Shannon Airport (EINN) and Cork Airport (EICK), with the intention of returning to EIWF. During the landing at EICK, control of the aircraft was lost, and it impacted at the threshold of runway (RWY) 16. The aircraft came to rest on the runway threshold, upright, with the left main-gear and nose-gear detached. The Student Pilot exited the aircraft uninjured. There was no fire.

Probable Cause
1. The aircraft stalled in level flight, approximately 15 ft above the runway surface, resulting in a loss of control.
Contributory Cause(s)
1. Unfamiliarity with the visual environment of the approach and threshold of RWY 16 at EICK
2. Unstable approach to RWY 16 at EICK.
3. Inattention to airspeed during the approach and landing phases
