Narrative:
During a navigation flight, the pilot lost control of the ULM which collided with the ground in the middle of a pine forest.

The aircraft crashed in the forest. The pilot and his passenger did not survive in the wreckage of the ultralight. This is what the rescue team found when they finally reached the site of the accident, which was particularly inaccessible. The medical team even had to be airlifted out.

The pilot was an experienced helicopter pilot, instructor at the light aviation school (ES ALAT) and responsible for the aeronautical section. His passenger was 66 years old.
