Departure airport: Fricktal-Schupfart (LSZI)

Investigating agency: STSB Switzerland
Narrative:
The final approach to Lommis took place at an approach speed of around 65 kt, which corresponds to the procedures. The pilot thus followed the concept of a stabilized final approach. The flare phase, on the other hand, was not sufficient, so that HB-YLP touched down on the grass runway with excessive speed in a horizontal flight attitude. As a result, the aircraft was able to take off again after rolling over a ground wave and hit the runway again, this time hard, damaging the nose landing gear. The pilot reacted after the hard touchdown with a takeoff. This led to the continuation of the flight with a damaged aircraft. The decision was made then carry out two low flyby flights for a visual check by the ground crew and a landing in coordination with the ground crew in Lommis.
