Summary

The student pilot was on his second solo training flight, having completed a one hour dual training flight immediately beforehand. He reported that on his last landing, which he considered to have been possibly a little heavy, he had heard a crunching noise from the nosegear. Realising that the nosegear was damaged, he tried to keep the nose up as the aircraft decelerated, hoping to minimise damage to the propeller. However, as the aircraft slowed, the nose dropped and the propeller struck the runway. Inspection of the failed nosegear revealed it had failed as a result of the previous heavy landing.
