The student pilot, operating under the remote supervision of an instructor had been conducting circuits in his own aircraft. Whilst conducting a glide approach, the pilot noticed that the aircraft was at a lower altitude than desirable and decided to delay extending the landing gear until late on the approach. The aircraft subsequently landed with the landing gear retracted. According to the pilot and his instructor the 'gear unsafe' warning horn was not working at the time of the accident, nor had it worked during the endorsement. An engineer had told them that it was a permissible unserviceability. This information was subsequently found to have been incorrect.
