The aircraft suffered a substantial loss of engine power on return from a navigational training exercise. The instructor took control and carried out a trouble check, which included the selection of carburettor heat, but failed to prevent a total loss of power. A glide approach was made towards the only cleared area, a road near the lake shore. During the approach, it became apparent the aircraft would not reach the road. The aircraft was ditched into the lake, about 10 metres from the shore. All three occupants vacated the aircraft uninjured.
