Narrative:
The IAI 1125 Astra SP was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE), Florida, USA. The airline transport pilot, commercial copilot, and one passenger were not injured.
The pilot reported that he was conducting a takeoff on runway 27 with the intended destination of Caracas-Simón Bolívar International Airport, Venezuela. During the takeoff roll, at rotation speed, the airplane did not respond when the pilot pulled back on the control yoke. He tried to rotate again, and the airspeed was in excess of V1, about 130 knots. With no response, he performed a rejected takeoff with maximum braking and full reverse thrust. The airplane departed the end of runway 27, proceeded through the overrun, and into the grass beyond the runway. The airplane pivoted to the left and came to a stop in the grass, near the perimeter access road. The crew and passengers exited the airplane and were met by first responders.
The nose and right main landing gear collapsed during the accident sequence and the airplane sustained substantial damage to the forward fuselage and right wing.
