Cat. 2 investigation report: simplified-format report, adapted to the circumstances of the occurrence and the investigation stakes.

On returning from an aerobatic flight, the pilot decided to perform a flyby at low height and high speed, followed by several aerobatic manoeuvres overhead Villeneuve-sur-Lot aerodrome. He was very familiar with this aerodrome, where his aeroplane was based. He flew very close to the club-house where his friends and members of his family were gathered. After this flyby, he regained height without increasing the engine power and positioned himself for another manoeuvre in the vertical plane. During the descent, he was unable to avoid collision with the ground on coming out of a manoeuvre initiated at insufficient height.
