NTSB Factual Report

On October 5, 2017, about 1420 Pacific daylight time, a Piper PA-24-250, N7892P, sustained substantial damage during a hard landing at the Stark's Twin Oaks Airport (7S3) Hillsboro, Oregon. The flight instructor and student pilot sustained serious injuries. The airplane was registered to and operated by Twin Oaks Airpark Inc. under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as an instructional flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the local flight that departed about 1320.

The flight instructor reported that during a practice short field full stop landing, as the student pilot was approaching the landing flare, the airplane was slow and he called for a go-around. During the go-around, the airplane aerodynamically stalled and struck the runway hard, substantially damaging the fuselage and wings.
