Narrative:
The pilot and flight instructor were conducting touch-and-go landings in the traffic pattern. After the third takeoff and during the initial climb, the engine began to lose power. The flight instructor stated that the airplane was at 55 knots and 200 ft above the ground and that insufficient runway was remaining to land. With the engine still running with partial power, he tried to maintain level flight and return to the airport; however, the engine power continued to decrease to the point where the flight instructor was unable to maintain level flight. He made a forced landing in the nearest field, and the airplane collided with trees. The engine was functionally tested, and it operated normally.

Probable Cause: A partial loss of engine power, which resulted in a forced landing on unsuitable terrain. The reason for the loss of engine power could not be determined during postaccident examination.
