Confidence Rating: Information verified through data from accident investigation authorities
After a touch-and-go landing, after retracting the flaps, the aircraft was established in climb for a return flight to Montpellier. At an altitude of about 700 feet, the pilot noticed that the aircraft was no longer climbing and that it could no longer maintain its speed. He felt a loss of engine power confirmed by a Load indication of about 55% although the power lever was set to 100%. The pilot stabilized the altitude, turned back to Rodez and announced himself in distress; the controller gave a QDM to the pilot for a direct final. The landing was normal.

The origin of the failure was identified ten days later after a second similar event. The failure seems to be due to an induction problem and to a faulty connector in the injectors. The connections have been checked and some of the lugs have been tightened. The change of the electrical harness is planned.
