Summary

Summary

The student pilot had been briefed and authorised to conduct solo circuit training. The runway in use was 36 and the wind was from 020 degrees at 10 to 15 kts. During the landing roll the aircraft encountered a gust of wind from the east. This caused the right wing to lift abruptly. Although the pilot applied full right aileron control he was unable to arrest the aircraft's roll to the left. The aircraft then departed the runway before coming to rest inverted, on the western side of the runway. The pilot exited the aircraft safely. The aircraft was not fitted with an emergency locator transmitter.
