Summary

On 4 September 2012, the pilot of a Piper PA-28 aircraft, registered VH-SFK (SFK), was conducting solo touch-and-go circuits at Bankstown Airport, New South Wales.  After landing on the fourth solo circuit, when the pilot applied full power for take-off, SFK veered suddenly to the left onto the grass. The pilot reduced the throttle setting to the idle position and applied the brakes, however the aircraft collided with the airport perimeter fence. The aircraft sustained substantial damage and the pilot sustained minor injuries.
