NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that during the landing flare he pitched up "higher than what is normal" and the airplane bounced three times during the touchdown. The pilot further reported that he was able to taxi the airplane to the ramp, but he noticed the nose wheel was flat.

During a 100-hour maintenance inspection conducted a week later, it was revealed that the firewall sustained substantial damage.

The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airframe or engine that would have precluded normal operation.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot’s use of an excessive pitch attitude during the landing flare, which resulted in a bounced landing.
