Having just completed a local flight consisting of circuits at Cork Airport with a Flight Instructor, the Student Pilot was conducting his second solo flight, which also consisted of circuits at the airport. While attempting to land during the second circuit, the aircraft bounced on the runway a number of times and then landed on the runway, nose wheel first. This resulted in the partial collapse of the nose landing gear, with consequent damage to the aircraft engine and propeller. The Student Pilot exited the aircraft uninjured. There was no fire.
