Summary

On arrival at Jandakot the student pilot flew a circuit for a normal, full flap approach and landing. During the final approach the airspeed reduced below the target figure. The instructor, who was monitoring the situation, allowed it to develop beyond a point where a go-around should have been made. Neither the student nor the instructor took any corrective action and the aircraft landed heavily on the main landing gear and the tail skid. It was reported that the instructor allowed the situation to continue in an attempt to have the student recognise his error without intervention from the instructor. The instructor's inexperienced was probably a factor in his misjudgment as to when he should take recovery action.
