Summary

Summary

The student was landing at the completion of a solo training flight. After an apparently normal touchdown, the aircraft suddenly swung to the right and tipped forward on to its nose, collapsing the nosegear leg in the process. The pilot reported that, after landing, she applied right rudder to correct the aircraft back to the centreline but inadvertently applied right brake. This resulted in her losing directional control of the aircraft. Findings: 1. The pilot inadvertently applied right brake while attempting to control direction by the application of right rudder. 2. The pilot lost directional control of the aircraft. 3. The pilot's flying experience level was low.
