IMC Clubs, a club designed to keep instrument pilots safe by building their proficiency, has awarded the Las Vegas Chapter the “Most Active Chapter” Award for the fourth quarter of 2010.
Founded by Mike Radomsky, president emeritus of the Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association (COPA), and an instructor at The Flight Academy in Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Chapter of the IMC Clubs has excelled in generating exciting new experiences for the local flying community, according to club officials.
Radomsky also serves on the Permanent Editorial Board of the Aviators Model Code of Conduct, a publication made available to all aviators and aviation organizations to enhance the ethics, citizenship, airmanship and training, essential to the interests of general aviation. The AMCC is free.
Members of Las Vegas Chapter of IMC Clubs — who call themselves the “IMC Musketeers” — fly many types of airplanes. They range in age from 18 to 80, experience levels from rookie to retired Air Force jet pilots, with a wide range of professional backgrounds. What they have in common is a love of aviation in general and an enduring curiosity about the intricacies and challenges of instrument flight, according to club officials, who note the group meets every week to discuss flying and learn from each other.
“No words can express my admiration about how much dynamism and contribution to aviation safety this group was able to develop. Besides an involvement in the local aviation community, they were able to cultivate a unique friendship and energy,” said Radek Wyrzykowski, President of IMC Clubs.
When asked about the reason for the Las Vegas chapter?s success, Mike replied, “It’s really the members’ success story. The IMC Club Musketeers demonstrate an amazing passion for safety and the pursuit of aviation knowledge. Their dedication and enthusiasm is the reason for our continued growth.”
