Crew on board:
Pax on board:
The crew was completing a local training flight at Rio de Janeiro-Galeão Airport. On final approach, the instructor voluntarily shut down the engine number four to simulate a failure. Simultaneously, the pilot under training lost control of the airplane that stalled and struck the runway surface. After impact, the airplane veered off runway and came to rest. While all four crew members were evacuated safely, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
Error of judgement on part of the instructor who was overconfident. Following incorrect manoeuvres on part of the pilot under training, incorrect training instructions and a wrong approach configuration, control was lost.
