NTSB Factual Report

On August 20, 2018, about 1705 Hawaii-Aleutian standard time, a Piper PA-28-180 airplane, N98146, sustained substantial damage during a forced landing following a loss of engine power during takeoff from Dillingham Airport (PHDH), Mokuleia, Hawaii. The certified flight instructor, student pilot, and passenger sustained minor injuries. The airplane was registered to Alana Aviation Inc. Trustee, and operated by Aviation Academy Hawaii under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as an instructional flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the local flight which originated from the Daniel K Inouye International Airport, Honolulu, Hawaii, at 1634.

The flight instructor reported that they had conducted a series of practice touch-and-go landings on runway 8. During the takeoff sequence of the third touch-and-go, the engine lost power about 300 ft above ground level. The flight instructor stated that he took control of the airplane and initiated a forced landing to an open field south of the runway. During the landing sequence, the airplane struck a fence and came to rest upright.

Examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that the right wing and fuselage sustained substantial damage. The airplane was recovered to a secure location for further examination.
