Narrative:
Aircraft crashed and burned with four on board (pilot + three passengers), all of them died as a result.

MOST LIKELY CAUSE OF ACCIDENT
Disconnection of the right magnet of the engine in flight, when the clamping ear fractures, associated with overloads suffered on the clamps (fastening jaws), during the installation, removal and/or operation of the engine over time.
5. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS
5.1. Low available height above the ground, at the moment of the failure of the right magnet at a critical moment of the flight.
5.2. Sharp left turn after magnet failure, aggravating the flight situation, losing lift and plunging to ground.
5.3. Poor reaction time available to the pilot to perform a procedure for engine failure on take-off.
