#1 When my older brother was a flight instructor, his students would have to plan and fly a cross country trip at a certain point. He says he was distracted once looking at the chart and one student headed into the airspace reserved for the Cincinatti Interantional airport. I guess it can happen to anyone.

#2 Situational awareness, folks. Plan your route, highlight your route, any restricted areas on the map. Write down freqs and any other info you need. A well planned flight will avoid these embarassing and possibly grounding and license jerking incidents. That is the responsibility of the pilot in command, whether he or she flys big iron or a supercub, it is all the same.
