C-FCSP, a Cessna 172S aircraft operated by Pacific Sky Aviation, was returning to Victoria, BC (CYYJ) from the Cowichan Lake flight training area with one student pilot on-board. During the approach to land at CYYJ, ATC requested the pilot increase their approach speed. During the landing flare, the aircraft porpoised, and the touchdown was hard. The pilot taxied the aircraft to the Pacific Sky Aviation Hanger.
Subsequent inspection revealed that the aircraft had sustained substantial damage including both propeller ends being bent, the nose wheel damaged and the bottom of the aircraft rippled.
