Location:Hollister, CA -   United States of America

Investigating agency: NTSB
The airplane veered off the runway during landing and collided with a runway sign. The certified flight instructor (CFI) and student were practicing a simulated single engine approach. The student lost directional control of the airplane after touchdown. The CFI elected to do a go-around. Just after adding power for the go-around, the airplane veered off of the runway and the right flap assembly impacted a runway sign. No mechanical malfunctions or failures were reported.
Probable Cause: the student pilot's failure to maintain directional control and the instructor's inadequate supervision of the flight.
