The pilot/owner was operating the airplane under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91. The private pilot receiving instruction and the certified flight instructor (CFI) were not injured; the airplane sustained substantial damage from a post-crash fire. The local instructional flight departed North Las Vegas at an undetermined time. Visual meteorological (VMC) conditions prevailed, and no flight plan had been filed.

The pilot was practicing simulated single-engine landings with the CFI on board. During landing, a main landing gear collapsed, and the airplane veered off the runway into the infield. The pilot and CFI egressed, and then the airplane caught fire.
