NTSB Factual Report

The pilot stated that he and a friend were conducting a ferry flight in their Cessna R182. The pilot performed a preflight inspection of the airplane, started the engine, and back-taxied on runway 5, a 2,200-foot long, 50-foot wide, asphalt runway. He then performed a run-up, and initiated a takeoff roll on runway 5. About "three quarters down the runway," the pilot attempted to rotate the airplane, but it did not respond well. The pilot then noted that the airspeed indicator was indicating less than the 65-knot speed needed to continue with rotation. At that time, the pilot aborted the takeoff; however, the airplane overran the runway, struck a rock, and came to rest in a field. During the overrun, the airplane sustained substantial damage to the empennage and right wing. The pilot and a nearby weather station reported the winds as calm at the time of the accident. The pilot also reported that there were no mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot-in-command's delayed aborted takeoff, which resulted in a runway overrun and collision with terrain. A factor was the rocks off the end of the runway.
