On June 08, 2006, about 1545 mountain standard time, a Cessna 152, N627PA, collided with terrain near Peoria, Arizona. Pan Am International Flight Academy was operating the airplane under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 91. The certified flight instructor (CFI), who held a commercial pilot certificate, and the second pilot, who held a private pilot certificate, were fatally injured. The airplane was substantially damaged. The CFI was providing dual flight instruction to the private pilot. The local training flight departed from Phoenix Deer Valley Airport, Phoenix, Arizona, about 1445. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and a flight plan had not been filed.

According to the operator, the flight was scheduled as a spin training lesson. The student was enrolled in the multiengine CFI course, which required spin training as part of the curriculum.

The wreckage was located at 33 degrees 50.53 minutes north latitude and 112 degrees 25.06 minutes west longitude. The elevation was approximately 2,150 feet mean sea level (msl).
