On Tuesday 25 August 2020 at approximately 11:00 h, the Tecnam P2008JC EC-NJX aircraft suffered a loss of directional control during landing roll-out on runway 07 at the El Berriel Aerodrome (Las Palmas), causing it to exit the runway via its right-hand strip. There were two people on board: a pilot and a passenger (also a pilot from the school). The pilot had obtained his private pilot license through Canavia and rented the aircraft from them to accumulate flight hours.
As a result of its unplanned departure from the runway, the aircraft’s nose gear collapsed, and the propeller hit the ground, leaving the aircraft at a standstill on the right-hand runway strip. The two people on board were uninjured and evacuated the aircraft without assistance. The aircraft incurred damage to its nose landing gear, propeller and the lower forward fuselage. Some areas for improvement have been identified in relation to the design, location and actuation of the PARKING BRAKE lever of these aircraft.
The investigation has concluded that the accident experienced by aircraft EC-NJX was probably caused by landing with the right brake-circuit pressurised and the PARKING BRAKE lever in the LOCK position, which produced a braking asymmetry during the landing roll-out.
