The student pilot was ready to pass the PPL skill test. The examination day was postponed due to bad weather, and after 15 days, he finally got an appointment.

After completing the flight preparation, the airplane took-off from EBAW at 09.20UTC. The airplane went east towards Tessenderlo for the various flight examination exercises, then on towards Liege (Romeo entry point).

The flight plan included a landing at the EBZH airfield. The pilot applied the procedure for landing at this airfield. They were flying at 1,550ft agl, overhead EBZH, when the Flight examinator initiated
a simulation of a Practiced Forced Landing (PFL).

During final approach, the pilot noticed he was too low, and decided to abort the landing. When applying gently more throttle, the engine did not respond, and stayed at low rpm. The Flight examinator took over in an attempt to reach the airfield.

The airplane touched down in the field in front of the airfield, crossed a road, and came to a stop, after hitting concrete pillars and barbed wires.The two occupants climbed out of the airplane, uninjured, after having shut down all power, switches and controls
