A VC99's Pilot Proficiency Class

Saturday, Mar 7   9:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Rayvon Williams (CFII and IGI) returns to present the annual IFR Refresher Clinic. This offering satisfies the ground portion requirement of the Instrument Proficiency Check as defined in the FAA's IPC guidance document.

Attendees will receive a logbook endorsement attesting completion of the ground portion of an IPC. Whether you are a VFR pilot who's been thinking of adding this useful rating, or undergoing IFR training, or an out of currency IFR pilot or just looking for a refresher, this is the session for you.

Subject areas will include: • Regulatory Requirements • General Operating and Flight Rules • Attitude Instrument Flight • WX Reports and Forecasts • Flight Planning • Communications and Clearances • Charts • Departure Procedures • Enroute Procedures and Arrival Procedures • Approach Procedures • Use of Alternates • Lost Communications
