Monthly IMC Club Meeting -Takeoff Dilemma
Distraction on Takeoff, the Door isn't Latched. What to Do? Mastering the Art of Instrument Navigation
Date and Time:
Wednesday, August 12, 2020, starting at 19:00 Eastern Daylight Time (16:00 PDT, 17:00 MDT, 18:00 CDT, 13:00 HST, 15:00 AKDT, 16:00 Arizona, 23:00 GMT)
Jan Squillace - IMC Club Coordinator
Brief Description:

You have just taken off in IFR conditions, the passenger door isn't latched properly.    What's the best course of action?  Try to close the door?  Ask for vectors for an instrument approach? Divert somewhere else?

And your family is not happy with the door open.  There's a drip on the passenger from the fog and light rain.  Your wife in the back seat is frightened.  

Let's discuss alternatives and options 

IMC Club, through its nationwide chapters, provides organized “hangar flying” focused on building proficiency in instrument flying. Believing that safety and proficiency are developed through education and experience. Monthly meetings use real world scenarios to engage our members and allow them to share and build their experience. For IFR pilots, IFR students and anyone thinking about flying in the clouds.

What is the IMC Club?
IMC Club is the brain child of Radek Wyrzykowski; a Master Certified Flight Instructor Instrument and Multi-Engine Instructor. As a flight instructor in Norwood, Mass., Radek developed a volunteer mentor program to help instrument pilots improve their proficiency, and they loved it.

What is the purpose of the IMC club?
At IMC Club, our purpose is to promote instrument flying, proficiency and safety. Along with IFR flying and monthly local chapter meetings, we offer a resource-rich website which provides an electronic experience base.

Our 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. IMC Club Chapters offer monthly meetings in which pilots can network and share knowledge and experiences.

Do you need to bring anything?
First, bring your thoughts or story and be willing to share them with the group. This meeting is very interactive. Participation by the group is a key element to the IMC Club meeting.

Others have found it helpful to bring along a copy of their flight manual, GPS manual and charts. If you navigate with an iPad, bring it along.

Who can attend?
You don’t need an instrument rating to attend. This meeting is open to all current, non-current, and future instrument pilots.
