The aircraft was engaged on a Licence Skill Test (LST) at the time of the occurrence. Following navigation and general handling air work, the aircraft positioned back to EICK to carry out some circuits. On the third circuit to Runway (RWY) 25, the aircraft touched down heavily and bounced. This was followed by a series of pilot-induced oscillations resulting in a propeller strike to the left propeller. There were no injuries to the two occupants.
