Student of a training flight apparently jumped from a small private plane in mid-flight over the ocean, near coast in France.
The pilot instructor made an emergency landing on a beach in France on Tuesday August 24, after a student pilot jumped from the aircraft in flight.
The 32-year-old man apparently jumped from the plane when it was between 60 and 100 meters above the ocean.
Two hypotheses are considered by the investigators: the suicide of the student pilot or a technical problem with the aircraft.
After such a fall, the chances of finding him alive are almost nonexistent.
Significant resources were deployed to find this missing co-pilot offshore, two helicopters and two SNSM speedboats roamed the area all evening.
