NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that he was taking off for a local flight in the traffic pattern. During the takeoff roll, the nose of the airplane rose up and blocked the runway centerline markings. He stated that the airplane drifted to the left edge of the runway, and he attempted to continue the takeoff. The airplane exited the left side of the runway surface, and impacted terrain. The airplane came to rest in a level attitude. Examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed structural damage to the nose landing gear assembly, left and right main landing gear assemblies, fuselage, and wing.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot’s failure to maintain directional control throughout the takeoff roll.
