2014-11-17: A Canlink Aviation Diamond DA 20-C1 (C-FNGN) on a local flight from Moncton, NB (CYQM) taxied into position for departure runway 29 for circuits. The aircraft was cleared for takeoff and then reported they would be taxiing back to the apron due to a flat tire. The aircraft was able to taxi off the runway and into taxiway Bravo where the aircraft stopped. Taxiway Charlie was closed by NOTAM, so the only access to runway 29 was at the threshold of 29 via Alpha. As a result, several DV20's and BE20's were delayed on the ground due to the requirement to back track arrivals to the threshold of runway 29. The aircraft was pushed off Bravo at 1848Z.
2014-11-17: Update Maintenance & Manufacturing: Wednesday afternoon at approximately 1530 AST Da20 C-FNGN with an instructor and student on board were conducting a standard MFC lesson plan. The flight was to consist of the student practising take-off and landings. The flight lesson sortie listed Engine Failure on Take-off as one of the line items. As per standard procedure, the instructor briefed the student prior to the manoeuvre. Prior to take-off the instructor advised the tower controller of his intentions by requesting the option. During the initial climb the instructor simulated the engine failure buy reducing the power to idle while simultaneously stating simulated engine failure. Initial reaction by the student was delayed more than normal and the instructor took control to recover. Insufficient Altitude did not allow for the instructor to recovery before the aircraft had a hard landing. After landing, the instructor perceived the aircraft to have a flat tire which was reported to MFC operations. Upon further inspection, it was noted that the aircraft has suffered additional damage to the nose wheel, propeller, Right main landing gear, and right wing.

During the accident flight the student pilot was practising an Engine Failure on Take-off. The instructor had previously briefed the student prior on the manoeuvre During the initial climb the instructor simulated the engine failure by reducing the power to idle while simultaneously stating simulated engine failure. Initial reaction by the student was delayed and the instructor took control of the aircraft. There was insufficient altitude available to allow the instructor to fully recover the aircraft. The aircraft impacted the runway with sufficient force to cause the propeller and right wing tip to strike the runway as well as to cause extensive damage to the nose and right main landing gear. There were no injuries.
