Narrative:
The pilot reported that on 24th September, 2014, he was scheduled to do two flights with the Cessna 206 aircraft, Registration No. GDF 3. The first flight was to Tacama Airstrip.
Having completed the Tacama flight. He prepared for the second flight which was to Jaguar Airstrip. He supervised the loading and departed from his company base, Cheddi Jagan International Airport, with three passengers and cargo for Jaguar Airstrip. The flight was uneventful until the approach to Jaguar. In keeping with the procedure for operating into an uncontrolled airstrip, the pilot approached the airstrip on left circuit and checked the airstrip to observe its condition and to confirm that it was clear. He then made the approach to land but his first attempt was too high and fast and required a second approach. He made the second approach and landed. The aircraft touched down beyond the touchdown point and ran off the runway. The accident was a runway excursion that occurred during mid- afternoon. There were no injuries or fatalities.


Cause:
The probable cause of the accident was that the aircraft touched down beyond the touchdown point and ran off the confines of the runway in an uncontrolled manner.
Contributory Causes:
1. The approach to landing was not properly set up and the aircraft was high and fast on final.
2. When the aircraft bounced on landing it is apparent that the pilot panicked and reacted incorrectly by pushing in power, instead of cutting the power, this resulted in the aircraft running off the runway.
