NTSB Factual Report

The pilot stated that this was his first time flying the light sport airplane and just completed the first landing. He was getting familiarized with the airplane’s flight and landing characteristics. On the second landing, he permitted the airspeed low and the airplane stalled just prior to touchdown. A witness observed the airplane as it was approaching to land, its right wing dropped, impacting the ground. It then spun towards the right before the nose section impacted the ground; incurring substantial damage. The pilot stated there were no mechanical failures or malfunctions of the airplane or any of its systems prior to the accident.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot did not maintain airspeed during approach to landing, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall.
