Aircraft: EXTRA FLUGZEUGBAU GMBH EA300/L Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On January 13, 2021, about 1319 eastern standard time, an Extra Flugzeubau GMBH EA300L, N771JP, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Pell City, Alabama. The pilot was not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot, he departed with 14 gallons of fuel in the wing tanks and 12 gallons in the center tank. After a 10-minute flight, he was on approach about 1,500 ft above ground level when the airplane experienced a total loss of engine power. The pilot was unable to restart the engine and the airplane’s left-wing stuck trees and terrain during the ensuing forced landing.

Examination of the accident site by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector revealed that the airplane came to rest upright in a field and sustained substantial damage to the wings and fuselage.

There was no odor of fuel and no evidence of fuel spillage at the scene. The center fuel tank was completely full, and the wing fuel tanks contained only trace amounts of fuel.

The airplane was recovered for further examination.
