Report on air accident at Rakkestad airport Åstorp, Norway 21 May 2016 with Reims Aviation SA F177RG, LN-ALK

Saturday 21 May 2016 LN-ALK was used on a training flight. There were a student pilot and an instructor pilot on board the aircraft. The landing gear handle was elected down on downwind leg. When the aircraft was landed, it turned out that the nose gear was not extended. The propeller came in contact with the runway and the aircraft started to drift towards the right. The AIBN has not been able to establish with certainty why the nose gear failed to extend prior to landing. The aircraft came to a complete stop just outside the paved path. The student pilot and the instructor pilot were uninjured.

This report is in Norwegian only.

No safety recommendation is issued in connection with this investigation.
