Wrong calculation in flight planning with wind condition. Rushing to return airplane. Discovered when engine started running rough and losing power. Went to emergency pressure. Contacted tmb tower. Faulty judgement in headwind and the amount of fuel in tank when tanks were checked visually at eyw. Factors affecting quality of human performance were inexperience and hurrying to get home. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following: callback conversation revealed that the aircraft made it to tmb landing on the runway. Reporter said he landed long and hot, and skidded a tire stopping. No damage to aircraft except flat spot on tire.

Title: GA SMA FUEL EXHAUSTION FORCED LNDG.
Narrative: WRONG CALCULATION IN FLT PLANNING WITH WIND CONDITION. RUSHING TO RETURN AIRPLANE. DISCOVERED WHEN ENG STARTED RUNNING ROUGH AND LOSING PWR. WENT TO EMER PRESSURE. CONTACTED TMB TWR. FAULTY JUDGEMENT IN HEADWIND AND THE AMOUNT OF FUEL IN TANK WHEN TANKS WERE CHKED VISUALLY AT EYW. FACTORS AFFECTING QUALITY OF HUMAN PERFORMANCE WERE INEXPERIENCE AND HURRYING TO GET HOME. CALLBACK CONVERSATION WITH RPTR REVEALED THE FOLLOWING: CALLBACK CONVERSATION REVEALED THAT THE ACFT MADE IT TO TMB LNDG ON THE RWY. RPTR SAID HE LANDED LONG AND HOT, AND SKIDDED A TIRE STOPPING. NO DAMAGE TO ACFT EXCEPT FLAT SPOT ON TIRE.
