Summary

FINDINGS

Contributing factors

The investigation identified that the following factors contributed to the accident:

  • The aircraft descended below the minimum altitude for a practice forced landing (500 ft above ground level).
  • The pilot allowed the aircraft's speed to decrease below the aircraft's stalling speed.
  • The aircraft stalled at a height above the ground that was not adequate to permit recovery.
  • It is possible that carburettor ice was present during the latter stages of the flight, reducing the available engine power.
