NTSB Factual Report

On September 25, 2004, about 1150 central daylight time, a Cessna 182P, N4637K, piloted by a student pilot and a certified flight instructor (CFI), sustained substantial damage during a nose landing gear collapse following a hard landing on runway 34 (3,821 feet by 50 feet, asphalt), at the Washington Memorial Airport, Washington, Missouri. The 14 CFR Part 91 training flight was operating in visual meteorological conditions without a flight plan. There were no injuries. The local flight originated at an unconfirmed time.

In a written statement, the CFI said, "hard landing on paved runway 34."

The student pilot did not submit a report of the accident.

NTSB Probable Cause

The misjudged flare by the student pilot and the inadequate supervision by the flight instructor. A factor was the overload failure of the nose landing gear.
