On the 27th March, 2014, at about 10:26 h, a Diamond DA–40D aircraft owned
and operated by International Aviation College, with nationality and registration
marks 5N-BRM was on a check-out training flight with a student pilot and an
instructor. The student executed two landings under supervision of the instructor
and was thereafter released for his first solo flight. The student pilot executed a
successful Touch and Go exercise, after which he requested for a full stop
landing and ATC granted approval to his request.
At 11:17 h the student pilot reported finals on runway 23 for a full stop landing and was cleared to land. The aircraft touched down on runway 23, bounced twice, and then veered off the runway to the left into the bush.
The aircraft was substantially damaged.
