NTSB Factual Report

The pilot of the weight-shift aircraft reported that he was practicing touch-and-go landings. When the aircraft touched down, it veered to the left because he did not have the ground steering centered before touchdown. The pilot initiated a go-around, however the aircraft collided with an airport ramp sign.

The aircraft sustained substantial damage to the wing.

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

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot’s failure to center the ground steering before landing, which resulted in a loss of directional control.
