The aircraft took off from the airport of Perpignan, for a training flight over the department, his pilot had to face a engine failure requiring him to make an emergency landing. The plane crash landed in some bushes. Both pilot and trainee survived the accident.

Bea final report:

The instructor and the student pilot take off for an instructional flight as part of the issuance of the PPL license. The lesson of the day is to observe the behavior of the aircraft during the release of the shutters. After ten minutes of flight, at 2000 ft, the instructor prepares the airplane in landing configuration.

He decides to have his student visualize the plan of descent. In descent, passing 1000 ft, he asks the latter to display a pitch-up attitude and put the full power. The instructor indicates that the engine then has misfires and no longer delivers power. He landed urgently in a clearing. When landing, the right wing hits a tree. On the ground there are twelve liters of fuel in the tanks.

The instructor took off with a fuel quantity equivalent to about one hour of flight. However only ten liters of fuel were usable in all flying conditions. During the go-around, a starvation of the fuel system led to the loss of engine power.
