Summary

The student pilot was conducting his third solo session of circuit training. On the second circuit, which was to be a full stop, the aircraft encountered turbulence on short final which caused the aircraft to climb and drop a wing. The pilot pushed the nose down then flared the aircraft. After touchdown, the aircraft bounced and began a series of porpoising manoeuvres until the nose leg broke and the aircraft came to a stop with damage to the propeller, nosegear and tail skid.
