IMC Club partners with Hartzell to host IFR Proficiency Center at Oshkosh

IMC Club is partnering with Hartzell Propeller and its sister company Hartzell Engine Technologies to host an IFR Proficiency Center from Monday, July 29, through Friday, Aug. 2, during AirVenture in Oshkosh.

Hartzell has secured a flight-line tent where the IMC Club will host daily IFR “brain teasers” in interactive forums followed by lunch for up to 100 guests. The sessions are open to IFR rated pilots or those in training. Admission begins at 10:45 each day.

Radek Wyrzykowski, IMC Club founder and president said, “Most IFR pilots strive to improve their professionalism as they build time. It takes work to get better and learning from others is essential. At club meetings, we call this hangar flying. Our daily program at AirVenture will reflect the same kind of IFR problem solving and thinking skills that we sharpen at our monthly chapter meetings.”

Guest hosts are featured at the IFR sessions and luncheons, which are limited to 100 visitors daily:

  • MONDAY 7/29 Guest Host, Mac McClellan, EAA
  • TUESDAY 7/30 Guest Host NTSB Member Earl Weener
  • WEDNESDAY 7/31 Guest Host Radek Wyrzykowski, president, IMC Club International
  • THURSDAY 8/1 Guest Host Mike Goulian, airshow pilot and ATP
  • FRIDAY 8/2 Guest Host Robert Goyer, Editor-in-Chief, Flying Magazine.

J.J. Frigge, executive vice-president of Hartzell Propeller, added, “This venue is perfect for raising the visibility of IFR proficiency. For a week Oshkosh is home to more than half a million aviation enthusiasts and we intend to keep building on the idea.”

As an additional outreach to pilots, Hartzell invites pilots and their guests to view the daily air show, 2 pm – 6 pm, from the Hartzell IFR Proficiency Center. Invitations to the Hartzell IFR Proficiency Center, both for the daily IFR “brain teasers” and air show viewing, are available throughout the AirVenture grounds. Invitations may be picked up at the Hartzell Propeller and Hartzell Engine Technologies booths in Building A. Invitations are also available at the static display exhibits of all OEM manufacturers of IFR capable aircraft.
