Cat. 2 investigation report: simplified-format report, adapted to the circumstances of the occurrence and the investigation stakes.

On final to runway 07L at Toussus-le-Noble after a return cross-country flight to Pontoise aerodrome, the student-pilot was confronted with an engine shut-down. The instructor took over the controls but the low height of the plane at that time did not enable him to increase the speed. The plane stalled during the flare then struck the ground before the runway.
The examination of the engine was unable to explain the shut-down.
