Category:Accident
Location:Cleburne Regional Airport - CPT/KCPT, TX -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Nature:Training
Departure airport:Arlington, TX (KGKY)
Destination airport:Arlington, TX (KGKY)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
While practicing a simulated single engine landing during an instructional flight in a twin-engine airplane, the pilot receiving instruction approached the runway at a high rate of descent. The pilot initiated the landing flare too high and allowed the airspeed to decay. The flight instructor told the pilot to perform a go-around. However, during the go-around procedure, the pilot raised the gear, inadvertently retracted the flaps fully, and then commanded a 15- to 20-degree left bank, resulting in an aerodynamic stall. The instructor took control of the airplane and leveled the wings, but the airplane touched down hard and departed the left side of the runway. The fuselage and left wing sustained substantial damage during the runway excursion.
Probable Cause: The pilot's inadvertent selection of flap 0 degrees during the go-around and the flight instructor’s inadequate supervision, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall at low altitude.
