Brantly B-2, N376SA


Whilst carrying out a practise engine failure as part of a Licence Proficiency Check, the engine stopped. The examiner took control and made an engine off landing during which the skids dug into soft ground, causing the aircraft to roll on its side. The cause of the engine failure has not been identified but was probably due to mishandling of the throttle. A mechanical failure cannot be ruled out as the operator did not provide maintenance records for the aircraft.
