Narrative:
The check ride flight departed from the airport at 1120. At approximately 1400, the airplane was reported overdue, and the local flight school launched some airplanes to initiate a search. According to radar data, the airplane appeared to be maneuvering at an altitude that varied between 8,200 feet msl and 9,000 feet msl and a groundspeed that varied between 40 knots and 200 knots. The last radar position at 1141:03 indicated an altitude of 8,900 feet msl and a ground speed of 6 knots. An on scene examination of the airplane revealed no anomalies.
Probable Cause: the pilot in command's (examinee) failure to maintain airspeed which resulted in a stall. Contributing to the accident was the inadequate supervision by the designated examiner.
