Brief Description:

IMPORTANT: This is a hybrid in-person/remote participate meeting with separate registrations. Register through this announcement if you are going to attend in-person. If you are planning to attend remotely, please follow this link for the online meeting https://www.faasafety.gov/SPANS/event_details.aspx?eid=108320

It’s been a brutal flight. Every smart move to evade the ice, and then the turbulence, worked at first and then fell apart. You make the smart move to divert, only to find the weather relents on final approach. Now you’re on the ground wondering if one more “smart” move would bring victory or catastrophe.

Speaker: Marc Epner

Marc Epner, is a 2,200-hour instrument-rated pilot, who earned his initial pilot rating in 1976. After a 25 year hiatus, he rekindled his love of aviation in 2004, became a partner in an SR-22, helped to start Leading Edge Flying Club, and co-hosts the Simple Flight Radio show, a podcast now in its tenth season. Marc shares his passion and his advocacy for general aviation through his presentations, writing, and flying. Marc will present an IFR situation and lead an audience discussion of “What Would You Do?” different, better, safer, smarter. Join in and help us all learn.

A Safety Meeting presentation by Kyle Lewis (AOPA) will follow the IMC Club. https://faasafety.gov/SPANS/event_details.aspx?eid=108321

The IMC Club

The IMC Club’s purpose is to promote instrument flying, proficiency, and safety. The intent is to create a community of pilots willing to share their perspective, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety, and build proficiency in instrument flying. An IFR rating is not needed to participate in this excellent forum where we think through the various options from the comfort of your chair, firmly on the ground... before it is you sitting in the cockpit.

We meet monthly when pilots (and would-be pilots) network and share knowledge and experiences to keep our heads in the game.

“Prior to attending a safety seminar please review and abide by current CDC, State and Local health guidelines.”

Due to this being a hybrid meeting, there are only 30 physical seats available at the venue, please make sure you are registering for the correct event as indicated in the title.
