Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The student pilot was conducting a training flight within the airspace when a considerable drop in the engine power output occurred. As it was not possible to continue flying to LKJH, she decided to perform emergency landing on the field she had selected. After the aircraft touchdown on the field with low crop, at the end of landing run, the nose landing gear sank in the water-logged terrain and broke down when the propeller, front part of the aircraft and the right half of the wing touched the ground. The student pilot suffered a minor injury and the aircraft sustained substantial damage in the air accident.

The main cause of the air accident was a technical defect of engine, which caused a loss of power output and necessary emergency landing on the field.
The contributory cause was the fact that the pilot had selected for emergency landing an area that was water-logged where the aircraft was performing its landing run. The nose landing gear sank, which resulted in its breakage and further major damage to the aircraft upon touching the ground.
