Although this is the Pilots first time operating a Multi-Engine aircraft and experience with a Retractable Gear System onboard the aircraft.
On the downwind leg of the traffic pattern, as part of the introduction to Multi-Engine aircraft, the Flight Instructor asked the Pilot to shutdown the Left Engine to simulate a Single-Engine Emergency Landing. The Pilot asked a series of questions during the procedure.The aircraft landed with the Landing Gear still in the retracted position.
The Flight Instructor reported that they both had become distracted and forgot to extend the landing gear.
