The Heat of the Moment
Guided discussion - The Heat of the Moment - an IFR Training scenario
Date and Time:

Al Schnur
Brief Description:


A scenario that starts rather quietly with good intentions almost becomes an emergency due to preflight procedures and a haste to obtain some real IFR flying exposure. An excellent Back to Basics tale that took place here in Central Florida. As is usual, a “hurry up and wait” day for practice approaches creates a trap. When it springs, you find yourself in hot water after only minutes in the air.  Is this an emergency that warrants drastic action, or just an abnormal situation necessitating calm thinking and execution of a practiced procedure?

Join us for a discussion with your fellow aviators to determine how you would react to the suggested recommendations for you.  This seminar will offer you 1 Knowledge Credit for your WINGS phase and will serve as the monthly IMC Club meeting.  Your knowledge & experience is valuable to your fellow airmen/women; please participate and share your knowledge so we all become safer aviators.
