Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
An Orlican VT-116 Orlik II fell down cca 315 m short of THR RWY 36 from Nové Mesto Airport (LKNM).
The student pilot practiced the flying around the circuit pattern. Since she was high on final approach (cca 650 ft/200 m) she was adviced to make a 360° turn by her instructor via radio. Soon after she started the turn the glider fell into a spin. The pilot was able to recover from cca 50 ft /15 m/ AGL but fell into another one right away. This spin was unrecoverable due to proximity of the ground. Student pilot died instantly and the glider was destroyed.
