Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The operator's check pilot stated that they were on a non-revenue positioning flight and he was conducting flight training for the new pilot, who was seated in the left seat. This was the new pilot's first flight and landing in the airplane. He landed the airplane normally and was in control of the braking when he brought the propeller control levers into reverse. The airplane then began to turn to the left, exited the runway, and collided with a runway sign before coming to a full stop about 40 feet from the left side of the runway. The pilot tried to steer the airplane with the tiller wheel but was unable to react in time before striking the sign.

Probable Cause: The flightcrew's failure to maintain directional control while initiating an engine reverse after landing.
