The airplane departed on a local training flight. A flight instructor in the rear seat was checking out the front seat pilot who was new to the airplane. Witnesses reported that after the airplane became airborne, it did not climb as expected. While over the water and beyond the departure end of the runway, at an estimated altitude of 150 to 200 feet above the water, the airplane was observed to enter a shallow left turn. The bank increased, the nose dropped and the airplane struck the water. The CFI was found with his shoulder harness not connected. No evidence of pre-existing mechanical failure was found with the airframe or engine.
The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
