The aircraft took off from Rouen, 80 miles from Villejuif, and was supposed to land in Toussus-le-Noble, near Versailles.
The three people on board were a flying instructor in his 80s and two passengers in their late 20s.
The tail of the aircraft was detached from the rest of the plane and the wings were largely torn off.
An investigation into involuntary injuries and endangering the lives of others was opened by the regional prosecutor and the air transport gendarmerie.
