NTSB Factual Report

On August 31, 2018, about 1700 mountain daylight time, a Piper PA46-350P airplane, N747DA, registered to a private individual, sustained substantial damage during an aborted takeoff from the Dona Ana International Jetport (DNA), Santa Teresa, New Mexico. All 6 occupants, the private pilot and 5 passengers, were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and a flight plan was not filed. The personal cross country flight was being conducted under the provisions of Federal Code of Regulations Part 91. The flight's intended destination was Chihuahua, Mexico.

After refueling and loading the passengers and baggage, the pilot taxied to the intersection of taxiway Delta and runway 10. With 10-degrees of flaps and full throttle, the pilot began takeoff on runway 10 from the intersection. The airplane did not liftoff, so the pilot stopped the takeoff and back taxied to the end of the reciprocal runway (runway 28). Runway 28 was 9,550 feet long and dry asphalt and the pilot reported that the wind was calm. With 20-degrees of flaps and full throttle, the pilot started to takeoff, using the full length of runway 28. Approaching 60-70 knots, the airplane started to liftoff, but was not climbing. The pilot then lowered the nose toward the runway. The airplane hit the runway hard, veered to the right, and exited the runway. After the airplane came to a stop in the grass, all occupants exited.
