Category:Accident
Location:Baton Rouge, LA -   United States of America
Phase: Unknown
Nature:Training
Departure airport:BTR
Destination airport:
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The 19 hour student pilot failed to maintain an adequate approach airspeed which resulted in a hard landing. The student pilot stated that on final approach he noticed his airspeed was low so he added power. Subsequently, the airplane impacted the runway hard, bounced and veered to the left side of the runway where it impacted a runway marker sign. The airplane slid across grassy terrain and came to rest upright on another runway.
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain an adequate approach airspeed which resulted in a excessive descent rate and hard landing and the pilot's failure to recover from a bounced landing. A factor was the pilot's lack of total experience.
