Destination airport:
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The airplane impacted terrain during a forced landing following a loss of engine power while on final approach. The student pilot reported that when he advanced the throttle, the engine 'sputtered, and then quit.' The pilot executed a forced landing, during which the airplane contacted trees and came to rest inverted. The pilot stated that he believed the loss of engine power was a result of carburetor icing. The temperature and dewpoint at the time of the accident were conducive to serious carburetor icing at glide power. The position of the carburetor heat control during the approach could not be determined, since attempts to contact the pilot subsequent to an initial telephone interview were unsuccessful.
Probable Cause: The total loss of engine power due to carburetor ice. Factors were the weather condition conducive to the formation of carburetor ice and the lack of suitable terrain for the forced landing.
