The aircraft departed Canberra Airport to the Yass/Barton training area, unfamiliar to the pilots, to practice turns and climbs. Close to Yass, below the 6500' Class C step, they practiced manoeuvres for about half an hour, climbing to 6000' to avoid the turbulence. During the manoeuvres the pilot got disoriented and thought that the town just to the north of them was Yass, but it was actually Murrumbateman. The pilot hadn't realised that the 45-knot northeast wind had blown them into Class C airspace. When they realised their mistake, they departed class C and requested clearance to return to Canberra.
