The flight instructor reported that, during the instructional flight, the pilot receiving instruction was practicing an engine-out landing. The landing checklist was called, but due to "wind effects," the landing gear were not extended. The airplane touched down on the runway centerline with the landing gear retracted. The airplane slid left, exited the runway, and impacted a landing light. The lower fuselage longerons were substantially damaged.

Probable Cause: The pilot receiving instruction's failure to extend the landing gear. Contributing to the accident were the pilot receiving instruction's failure to complete the landing checklist and the flight instructor's inadequate monitoring of the pilot.
