SYNOPSIS

 

While dealing with a perceived technical problem about 20 minutes flying time from Galway Airport, the Pilot became unsure of his position and requested a radar heading to Galway from Shannon Air Traffic Control (ATC). On arrival at Galway the Pilot carried out a landing on Runway (RWY) 08, where the aircraft was observed by ATC to “porpoise” or bounce a number of times, before departing the runway near it’s end, onto an open grass area. While the aircraft was substantially damaged, the Pilot and passenger were unhurt. The Airport Fire Services later towed the aircraft to the light aircraft apron.
