OSHKOSH — PilotEdge and IMC Club are collaborating on the newly-launched IFR Pilot Proficiency Center at AirVenture 2014. Pilots can experience a series of carefully crafted IFR flights, specifically designed to get them flying “in the system,” while exposing them to increasingly challenging tasks.
The IMC Club and the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) have inaugurated a new skill-building center at AirVenture 2014. The IFR Proficiency Center will be a hub for instrument pilots and will feature Tech Talks, IMC Club chapter meetings, and eight Redbird flight simulators on which pilots can gauge their instrument proficiency by flying various approach scenarios.
The first chapter of the IMC Club International in Canada was launched on May 7, when pilots met at Springbank Airport, outside of Calgary.
Since its inception over two years ago, the IMC Club has grown from four pilots in Norwood, Mass., to more than 2,000 members globally.
The first winner of the IMC Club’s “Brown Jacket Award” goes to Andrew Dow, Chief Flight Instructor at Great River Aviation and Aviation Program Coordinator at Quincy University, Quincy, Ill.
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.
OSHKOSH, Wis. — Pilots will meet on Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. to establish the Fox Valley Chapter of the IMC Club International.
‘Plane Talk,’ an online aviation talk show from the founders of IMC Club International, is now available on iNetRadio.
Pilots will meet in November in Santiago, the capital of Chile, to establish the first chapter of the IMC Club International in Latin America.
The 72nd chapter of the IMC Club has been founded at the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) headquarters in Frederick Md.
A brown (leather) flight jacket will be awarded annually by the IMC Club to one outstanding general aviation instrument pilot for his or her safety, proficiency and contributions in helping other pilots in their quest to “Master the Art of Instrument Navigation.” This recognition will be an award similar to the “green jacket” award in professional golf.
