Category:Accident
Location:Auburn, AL -   United States of America
Phase: Unknown
Nature:Private
Departure airport:Thomaston, GA (OPN)
Destination airport:Auburn, AL (AUO)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
After landing, the pilot applied the brakes to slow the airplane for a left turn off the runway. Instead, the airplane began a turn to the right, which could not be corrected with left brake application. The airplane departed the right side of the runway and came to a stop upright on a grass apron. A postaccident examination of both the left and right brakes by an aircraft mechanic revealed that the brakes turned freely with no dragging noted and that they appeared to be functional at the time of the examination.
Probable Cause: The pilot's loss of directional control after landing, which resulted in a runway excursion.
