NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

THE CFI PULLED THE THROTTLE TO IDLE TO SIMULATE AN ENG FAILURE BUT DURING THE EMERGENCY PROCEDURES, THE STUDENT PULLED THE MIXTURE TO THE IDLE CUTOFF POSITION. THE CFI DID NOT NOTICE THIS UNTIL THE ENG DID NOT RESPOND WHEN THE STUDENT APPLIED THE THROTTLE TO GO-AROUND. AT THAT TIME THE ACFT WAS JUST ABOVE SAWGRASS & THE CFI PUSHED THE MIXTURE TO THE FULL RICH POSITION & THE ENG DID START BUT NOT BEFORE THE MAIN LANDING GEAR CONTACTED THE SAWGRASS.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

TOTAL LOSS OF ENGINE POWER DUE TO INADVERTENT USE OF THE MIXTURE CONTROL BY THE STUDENT, INADEQUATE SUPERVISION BY THE CFI, AND DELAYED REMEDIAL ACTION BY THE CFI RESULTING IN THE OFF AIRPORT LANDING.
