Narrative:A private pilot accompanied by a Grade 2 flight instructor departed from Lanseria International Airport with the intention to complete a proficiency check flight in the Lanseria circuit. The pilots of ZS-CAP completed two uneventful circuits and during final approach for the second circuit whilst communicating with FALA air traffic control (ATC), the aircraft was cleared for a touch and go where after the private pilot requested an early right hand turn. FALA ATC approved the request provided the aircraft was safe and able to complete the manoeuvre.

|Confidence Rating:|| Accident investigation report completed and information captured|
After the touch and go the aircraft was seen turning right onto the crosswind leg on the third circuit, where after it was seen diving towards the ground. The fitted ballistic parachute was seen by witnesses in the transition phase of deployment. During the impact sequence both occupants on board sustained fatal injuries. The aircraft was destroyed in the crash.
The investigation revealed that the accident aircraft had had a full flap setting which was not normal for an aircraft in a take-off configuration as stipulated in the Pilot’s Operating Handbook (POH).
The aircraft entered a stall at low altitude from which the pilots were unable to recover.
1. The pilots omitted to reconfigure the aircraft flaps for take-off as per the POH take-off settings following the touch and go landing.
2. The aircraft’s ballistic parachute was deployed and was in transition at a low altitude, which further lowered the nose attitude of the aircraft.
