Narrative:
The student pilot was practicing takeoffs and landings. He reported that he flared the airplane early and that it ballooned before bouncing firmly several times. The pilot subsequently lost directional control of the airplane, which then departed the side of the runway and collided with an airfield light. A postaccident examination of the airplane revealed damage to the firewall and fuselage. No other anomalies were found.
Probable Cause: The student pilotís improper flare and inadequate recovery from a bounced landing, which resulted in a loss of directional control.
