The IMC Club in Norwood, Mass., is opening its doors to pilots nationwide.
The club’s goal is to increase pilot confidence and proficiency in actual IMC conditions. It was established as an additional learning resource for instrument rated pilots and students pursuing their instrument ratings. To accomplish this, bi-weekly meetings are held to help pilots and students build and maintain their IFR skills and to learn from their peers.
The meetings provide a forum for pilots and instructors to discuss topics related to instrument flying, club officials say. Post-mission briefings are also presented by pilots and are analyzed so all members can learn.
Club Missions are divided into four levels, each level being more complex than the previous level. For example, initial missions include real world flying scenarios with relatively simple parameters. More complex missions include scenarios with multiple re-routings from ATC and more complex weather decisions. Completion of these missions determines your “rank” and proficiency level in the club.
Pilots and instructors can participate in the IMC Club by opening their own chapters. No fee is charged for club membership. IMC
