Type:Chapman Trike
Registration: N404EA
C/n / msn: 0001
Fatalities:Fatalities: 0 / Occupants: 1
Aircraft damage: Substantial
Location:Sunset Strip Airport - OH07, Marlboro, OH -   United States of America
Phase: Take off
Departure airport:Marboro, OH (OH07)
Destination airport:Marboro, OH (OH07)
Investigating agency: NTSB
After takeoff, witnesses saw the trike airplane turn left and pitch up to a steep nose-high attitude before the right wing dropped and the airplane descended to the ground. The descriptions of the accident were consistent with an aerodynamic stall. An examination of the wreckage did not detect any preimpact anomalies that would have precluded normal operation. The student pilot did not have a logbook, and, in a postaccident interview, he revealed that he had little experience and flight time in the airplane.
Probable Cause: The student pilotís failure to maintain adequate airspeed during a turn, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall.
