Investigating agency: MAK

The crash of RA-0380G occurred as a result of its stalling at a low altitude after reaching supercritical angles of attack during a loss of airspeed resulting from a failure of an engine operated beyond the calendar service life and erroneous actions of the pilot.
A possible cause of engine failure was its operation on motor gasoline that was not provided for by technical specifications.

The accident was the result of a combination of the following adverse factors:
- erroneous actions of the pilot in case of engine failure at low altitude;
- lack of theoretical and practical training of PIC as an instructor;
- little experience of the pilot on this type of aircraft;
- operations on aircraft with expired airworthiness;
- low altitude at which the aircraft stall occurred, which caused a shortage of altitude and time, which did not allow the pilot to withdraw the aircraft from the tailspin.
