Narrative:The pilot stated that he was simulating an engine out approach and "after crossing the airport boundary, the aircraft seemed to enter into a higher sink rate and slight power was added. A left turn to align with runway 22 was steeper than planned and the left wing lost lift striking the runway." The airplane then hit a taxiway embankment of about 2 to 3 feet high. The airplane bounced over the embankment and continued into a swallow drainage ditch filled with large drainage rock. The pilot recommended he should "plan training maneuvers more thoroughly, anticipate aircraft performance in all configurations [and] terminate the maneuver as quickly as possible if events warrant, do not try to 'Salvage' a maneuver."
