Investigating agency: DGAC Chile
Narrative:
The Cessna airplane went missing during a training flight and was found to have crashed the next day.

CAUSE OF THE ACCIDENT
The cause of the accident was due to the fact that the pilot, during a flight under visual flight conditions, would have found restrictions to the visibility, continuing the flight and inadvertently impacting the side of a hill (CFIT).
CONTRIBUTING FACTORS
Inadequate flight planning of the pilot in command of the aircraft, by not considering the cloudiness and the existing hills in the area where he would perform the flight.
Flying low and wedged between hillsides, with the existence of stratiform cloudiness and low luminosity due to the proximity of the FCCV time.
