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.
The first IMC Club chapter in Illinois kicks off Jan. 17 as pilots meet at Chicago Executive Airport (PWK).
A new chapter of the IMC Club has opened at the headquarters of the National Association of Flight Instructors in Kalamazoo, Mich.
IMC Radio’s “Plane Talk,” a live-streaming aviation internet radio talk show sponsored by the IMC Club International, will be broadcasting four two-hour shows live from its remote studio at the 2012 International 99s Conference in Providence, Rhode Island, starting July 11 and continuing through July 14.
The new IMC Club International website is up and running, thanks to a generous grant from Hartzell Propeller, and a web design company, Webbright Services. And thanks to the generosity of another IMC Club corporate member, LightSpeed Aviation, if you join the IMC Club or upgrade your membership to full access between now and the beginning of AirVenture on July 23, you will automatically be included in a drawing for a Zulu 2 aviation headset.
The National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) and IMC Club are now partners.
