The airplane crashed into the sea shortly after takeoff. The wreckage was sighted at sea by a fishing boat, that brought the body of the young trainee pilot (19 y.o.) on dry land; all attempts to revive him made by the fishermen were fruitless.
ANSV has opened an investigation.

Update by ANSV: "The investigation carried out on the wreck recovered from the seabed on which it lay and on the related fragments found within a radius of about 100 meters allowed to determine that the aircraft impacted the sea surface at a high angle and tilted to the left, when it still possessed an important component of translational motion. The analysis of the wreck made it possible to exclude the hypothesis of a structural failure or a malfunction of the flight controls or the powerplant. In-depth studies are underway on the flight activity carried out by the student pilot and on the level of preparation achieved."
