Narrative:
In October 2009, October 2010 and eleven times from September 2011 to September 2012, low pressure fuel pump failures occurred on aircraft equipped with Thielert TAE 125-02-99 engines. These failures, while having different failure modes, all resulted in the loss of pump drive. The engine then stopped due to lack of fuel supply.

 Event #10:

The student took off with his instructor and a passenger for an IFR flight to Perpignan Rivesaltes airfield. At the end of the initial climb, the engine stopped. The instructor took over the controls and performed a forced landing in a field.
