Confidence Rating: Information verified through data from accident investigation authorities
After landing on Runway 24 at Fairoaks Airport, the pilot was unable to stop the aircraft in the distance remaining. N374SR left the paved surface of the runway, went through the airfield boundary fence and crossed a public footpath before colliding with trees. The pilot was uninjured and able to extricate himself from the cockpit without assistance.

The runway overrun occurred because the aircraft landed too far down the runway for it to be stopped in the landing distance remaining. It is possible that a higher than normal engine idle speed contributed to the aircraft floating rather than achieving a positive touchdown. Additionally, the north-westerly wind gave little or no headwind component to reduce the aircraft’s groundspeed relative to its approach speed. A decision to go around would likely have been successful if made before the trees in the overshoot became a limiting consideration.
