Narrative:
During practice engine failures from height at a local Authorised Landing Area, the aircraft was configured for landing. During the flare, the aircraft landed in a flat attitude where the subsequent force bent the nose wheel oleo and the wheel tucked up into the nose wheel housing, damaging the compression rubber. As the aircraft was subsequently in a nose down attitude, the propeller contacted the ground, causing propeller tip damage.
