A Tecnam P2006T twin-engine aircraft, operated by Mount Royal University departed Calgary/Springbank Airport at 16:35 (Mountain Standard Time), during daylight hours.
The aircraft climbed to 8000 feet above sea level and progressed to the northwest.
Thirty minutes after departure, the last radar return from the aircraft was recorded at 7900 feet above sea level. This last radar return was 0.13 nautical mile southeast of the accident site location. The aircraft struck terrain 32 nautical miles northwest of CYBW at approximately 1704 (Mountain Standard Time).
All of the major aircraft components were located at the accident site but were destroyed by impact forces and a post-impact fire.
The aircraft was not equipped with, nor was it required to carry, a Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) or a Flight Data Recorder (FDR).

Findings as to causes and contributing factors:
1. For unknown reasons, the aircraft entered a spin from a stall exercise.
