The 1,500-hour commercial pilot was practicing slow flight operation at 400-500 feet above the ground, when he lost control of the aircraft and was unable to recover. The pilot stated to an FAA inspector that he attempted both power on and power off recovery techniques, but could not overcome the nose high attitude. Unsuccessful attempts were made by the NTSB investigator to obtain a complete Pilot/Operator Aircraft Accident Report (NTSB Form 6120.1/2) from the pilot.
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain control of the aircraft while practicing slow flight. A contributing factor was the low altitude selected by the pilot.
