Eric Rubel
Brief Description:

IMC Club (Tacoma Narrows-PWT) meets monthly for guided discussions (also known as "hangar talks") focused on real scenarios which call for tough decisions in the real world IFR environment. As we discuss the monthly scenario, we share ideas and safety tips on how best to deal with specific IFR challenges. Our objective: continually improve proficiency in IFR flying for pilots at ALL experience levels. This is a true participative discussion seminar and NOT just another one-sided lecture. This seminar is eligible for WINGS credit from the FAA Safety Team.

This month we'll be discussing a recent TBM-960 crash in Truckee, CA that involved a missed approach at minimums, which may have been caused in part by the pilot not being familiar with autopilot on missed approach when using advisory vertical guidance.

Pilots of all skill levels and experience from student pilot to ATP are welcome. IMC clubs are sponsored by EAA, which provides the training resources/scenarios to local coordinators/clubs.
