Narrative:
An ultralight weight-shift control aircraft took off from the airfield of Isières (EBIS) around 18:15 with a pilot and a passenger.
The purpose of the flight was to perform a local flight. Around 25 minutes later, the aircraft was last seen coming back to the airfield by a witness standing at a distance of 650m. The airplane was turning to the right, and diving. The witness heard the shock of the airplane hitting the ground. Both occupants were killed on impact.

Cause(s):
The accident was caused by a loss of control further to a steep descent manoeuvre initiated by the pilot before landing. It is likely that the pilot was surprised by an unexpected behaviour of the aircraft caused by the poorly performed and unapproved aircraft modifications.
