February Question of the Month:

You are on a descent via clearance and the controller vectors you off the procedure for traffic.

Are you going to continue your "descend via" altitude?

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, Massachusetts, Radek developed a volunteer mentor program to help instrument pilots improve their proficiency, and they loved it.

What is the purpose of 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.
