Narrative:
An Air Cadet student pilot of GTHL, (a Moncton Flight Center Cessna 172), was on a cross-country flight from Moncton to Moncton via Fredericton and Saint John, NB. Upon landing on Runway 27 at Fredericton, the aircraft 'porpoised' several times and came to rest on the runway. The pilot informed Fredericton FSS that the aircraft could not be taxied and requested assistance. The FSS specialist requested an AFF vehicle proceed to the aircraft and he also informed Moncton ACC that the runway was closed. A local aviation organization towed the aircraft clear of the runway and the airport AFF cleaned up a small hydraulic leak left on the runway from the aircraft. After the AFF checked the runway for debris, the runway was re-opened. Upon inspection, it was revealed that the nose gear and firewall of the aircraft had sustained damage. It was also reported that the pilot did not sustain any injuries.
