During a simulated engine out procedure the airplane made a hard landing in the overrun area, and the nose landing gear struck a berm on rollout. The student pilot took off again and on the second landing the nose wheel went flat on the landing rollout. The CFI and owner/pilot denied damaging the airplane on their flight. They indicated that the owner's son might have damaged the airplane on the previous flight when the airplane had made a hard landing, and that the airplane had not been properly inspected.

A hard landing by a pilot of a previous flight. Additional causes of the accident were an undershoot that resulted in a hard landing, and the CFI's failure to adequately supervise the flight.
