NTSB Factual Report

On May 1, 2002, about 1325 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 182Q, N4468N, was substantially damaged while landing at the Teterboro Airport (TEB), Teterboro, New Jersey. The certificated private pilot was not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan had been filed for the personal flight conducted under 14 CFR Part 91.

The pilot was landing on runway 1, a 7,000-foot long, 150-foot wide, asphalt runway. In a written statement, the pilot said he experienced a strong crosswind, which required a "very distinct left-hand crab." The airplane landed hard, veered to the right, and began to bounce. The pilot described the bounces as "hard;" however, the airplane came to rest on the runway, and he taxied to a parking area.

Examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector revealed damage to the propeller, nose landing gear, and the firewall.

The pilot did not report any mechanical problems with the airplane.

The pilot reported 220 hours of total flight experience, which included about 9 hours in make and model.

Winds reported at TEB, at 1351, were from 350 degrees at 15 knots, with 20 knot gusts.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's improper flare and his improper recovery from a bounced landing, which resulted in a hard landing. A factor in this accident was the crosswind condition.
