VMC PROGRAM this evening:
Inaugural meeting of the EAA Chapter 106 VMC Club at LWM. We'll run through two real flight scenarios submitted by EAA members.   Think about your experience, your currency, and your proficiency. Whether you are a very experienced pilot or someone who just got their pilot license, try to picture yourself in this discussion, and what action you would have taken. 

In one scenario you are approaching a busy airport and the tower has you enter a downwind leg.  After several transmissions back and forth over extending your down wind, which runway is better, and where you want to go once on the ground you receive some additional, perhaps conflicting directions. Well there's more to the scenario, which then leads to "What would you do?"

In another scenario, you’re on a short VFR flight with excellent weather conditions. Suddenly there is smoke, and even flames, in the cockpit, that appears to be coming from where you have all those really cool electronic devices plugged in ... Well there's more to the scenario, which then leads to "What would you do?"
