NTSB Prelim: RANS S21

Accident Flight Was A Test Flight Following Recent Maintenance

Location: Fairfield, UT Accident Number: WPR22LA211
Date & Time: June 9, 2022, 10:45 Local Registration: N46JH
Aircraft: RANS S21 Injuries: 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On June 9, 2022, about 1045 mountain daylight time, an experimental amateur-built Rans Designs S-21 airplane, N46JH, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Fairfield, Utah. The pilot sustained minor injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that the accident flight was a test flight following recent maintenance. A turbocharger air duct elbow, new fuel pumps, and fuel filters were installed on the airplane. A ground run-up was conducted, and all systems including fuel pressure, were normal. During the takeoff, about 150 ft above ground level, the pilot experienced a decrease in power. He maneuvered the airplane and landed hard on airport property during the forced landing. The left landing gear strut collapsed, and the left elevator and forward fuselage sustained substantial damage.

The wreckage was relocated to a secured facility for further examination.
