Narrative:
The aircraft had taken off from Lethbridge Airpark and was flying around the training area for approximately 1.5 hours when the engine lost power back to idle. The pilot pushed the throttle completely in (full throttle), however the power did not increase. The pilot pulled the throttle back out and then back in to full throttle again, however there was still no change in power. The pilot then turned the fuel tap for the right tank off and then back on and repeated the same for the left fuel tank - at this point the engine stopped completely. The pilot turned the ignition key off and then on again in an attempt to restart the engine but the engine did not restart. The pilot attempted to land on a dirt road within a paddock, and on landing, the left main wheel struck a rock which caused the aircraft to slip sideways into a wire fence.
