Incident: Piper PA 34-200T Seneca II, EI-CMT, Cork Airport, 3 March 2007: Report No 2007-013


Shortly after a deep touchdown on Runway (RWY) 25 at Cork Airport the Instructor (Pilot-in-Command) realised that the braking performance was poor.  With the aircraft failing to slow sufficiently the Student pilot applied hard braking, which locked up the main wheels and deflated both main tyres.  With little braking capability remaining the aircraft departed the paved area at the end of the runway.  There were no injuries.
