Excerpt
Excerpt: On March 4, 1994, a Piper PA-38-112 Tomahawk, N2496L, crashed during a biennial flight review for a private pilot in Inman, Kansas. The flight review was being administered by a certified flight instructor (CFI) who held airplane single engine, muitiengine, and instrument ratings and had 7,945 hours total flight time, including 745 hours in the PA-38-112. The private pilot's logbook was destroyed in the accident, but he was believed to have had approximately 100 hours total flight time. Witnesses reported that the airplane was in a 5- or 6-turn left spin and that the airplane spun until just before it struck the ground. Both occupants were killed, and the airplane was destroyed. Post accident examination revealed no mechanical problems with the airplane. The Safety Board determined that the probable cause of this accident was an unintentional spin that occurred during the maneuvering phase of a biennial flight review. A factor related to the accident was the airplane's lateral-directional characteristics at or near the stall. This accident, along with several other accidents involving similar circumstances, prompted the Safety Board to review the stall/spin characteristics of the PA-38-1 12. This review revealed that the fatal stall/spin accident rate for the Piper PA-38-112 was higher than for comparable aircraft and that certain required stall tests had not been performed during the certification of the airplane. Although the FAA is planning a flight test program to perform the omitted tests, this review raises significant concerns about the stall/spin characteristics of the PA-38-1 12.
