NTSB Factual Report

As the pilot turned the aircraft onto the final approach leg of the traffic pattern, he referenced the Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) of the landing runway. The PAPI indicated that the aircraft was above the standard glidepath, so the pilot reduced engine power to help the aircraft descend to glidepath altitude. According to the pilot, the aircraft "dropped too fast" and he applied power in an attempt to correct the descent rate. The aircraft then stalled above the runway and bounced on touchdown. The pilot recovered from the bounced landing and was able to taxi the aircraft back to the ramp. A post accident inspection revealed that the aircraft's firewall was bent.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain airspeed and misjudged flare during landing.
