The IMC Club will host an instrument proficiency forum at the AOPA Aviation Summit, slated for Oct. 11-13 in Palm Springs, California. The IMC Club Open Chapter Meeting will be held Thursday, Oct. 11, from 10:30 am to 12 pm in the Tapestry Room at the Hilton Palm Springs.
The forum’s open format, which began at this year’s Oshkosh AirVenture, is now known as The IMC Club Open Chapter Meeting. This meeting will follow a regular IMC Club Chapter meeting format, with a focus on IFR proficiency and the decision-making process through an organized discussion of real life experiences that pilots encounter in instrument flight.
The concept behind the IMC Club is to create local communities of instrument rated pilots, and aspiring instrument pilots, around the country and around the world, who regularly meet to discuss topics and share information relative to instrument flying. This “organized hangar flying” promotes the sharing of information and experience among attendees, according to club officials.
“We intend to be present with this ‘Open Chapter’ format at most general aviation events nationwide to allow pilots who don’t have chapters in their communities yet to sample what the IMC Club is all about,” said IMC Club President, Radek Wyrzykowski.
