IMC Club International has launched an IFR Airport Practical Tips Reference Base, a library of a “real life experiences” about arrival and departure to the nation’s busiest and most challenging airports like Boston Logan International, Los Angeles, or Teterboro, N.J., as well as rural airports.
All posts are based on actual experiences of the pilots. They will be checked, but not verified or endorsed by the IMC Club.
They will be placed in a searchable database. This practical resource will be available for use by IMC Club members and other non-profit charitable aviation organizations to help their volunteer pilots plan and execute their charitable flights.
Club officials encourage pilots to share their experiences.
Pilots submitting tips to the IFR Practical Experiences Reference Base will be rewarded with an entry to a drawing for free Aviator II Sunglasses provided by Randolph Engineering, the newest IMC Club supporting corporate member. Pilots can enter the contest by submitting as many practical experiences as they want, therefore increasing their chances to win, officials noted.
“This database, like everything at the IMC Club, is real life driven,” said Radek Wyrzykowski, president. “I hope that our members, together with other pilots, will step forward and regularly submit practical experiences that will help support public benefit flight. I know a lot of these great volunteers who often must fly IFR and IMC to totally unknown environments. As we know, practical aspects of a flight are as important, if not more so, as any textbook knowledge.”
The IMC Club is a membership-based, non-profit organization focused on instrument rated pilots and flight instructors, with a network of chapters throughout the world. The club’s intent is to create a community of pilots in order to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety and build proficiency in instrument flying.
