Damaged in forced landing during a training flight.

On a local instruction flight, while the student was making a simulated emergency landing with an engine on idle, as a consequence of a sudden acceleration for power recovery, the engine "choked".
The instructor made an emergency landing on unsuitable ground, impacting bushes on a mound of earth and the ground, due to inadequate planning of the simulated emergency maneuver.

Contributing Factors:
- Lack of adequate supervision and anticipation of the student's maneuvers by the flight instructor.
- Negative engine characteristic, not taken into account by the pilot.
- Confined runway with lateral and front obstacles and short length.
