On 8 June 2014, a Aeromoragon M-1 aircraft, Spanish registration EC-EI3, departed La Morgal Aerodrome, Asturias, Spain for a private flight in the region. While returning to the aerodrome, the aircraft engine sustained an in-flight failure, requiring the pilot to conduct an emergency landing in an open field. During the landing sequence the aircraft struck a tree, damaging the left wing, tail and fuselage. There were no injuries to the pilot and passenger that were on board.

As the accident occurred in Spain, the Comisión de Investigación de Accidentes e Incidentes de Aviación Civil (CIAIAC) is responsible for investigating this accident. As part of its investigation, the CIAIAC notified the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) as the State of Manufacture of the engine. The aircraft was fitted with a Jabiru 2200 engine.

In accordance with clause 5.18 of Annex 13 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, the ATSB appointed an accredited representative to liaise with the CIAIAC and Jabiru, and initiated an investigation under the Australian Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.

The ATSB has concluded its support of this investigation. On 2 February 2017 the CIAIAC released the final investigation report into this occurrence and it is available at www.fomento.gob.es.
