Let’s break it down and look at the points at which a different decision or action could have prevented the accident.

  1. The pilot should have reviewed the actions for raising, starting and lowering the motor on the ground before he got airborne.
  2. The pilot should have reviewed the performance characteristics with motor in and motor out.
  3. The pilot should have realised he was not prepared enough to test the motor on this flight.
  4. The pilot should have been more familiar with the handling characteristics of the glider with and without the motor deployed.
