Summary

Summary

Following a period of dual instruction the pilot was authorised to carry out her second solo circuit and landing. During the landing flare the aircraft ballooned and subsequently touched down on the nosewheel. The aircraft bounced and on the next touchdown the nosewheel broke off, the nose gear leg was displaced and the aircraft slid to a halt on the runway. The pilot's previous training flight had been conducted approximately one month prior to the accident. After misjudging the landing flare, the pilot persisted with the landing attempt instead of going around.
