Bremerton and South Sound EAA Chapter Monthly IMC Club Meeting

Eric Rubel
Brief Description:

The EAA IMC Club provides a "hangar flying" experience organized around instrument flight, in order to promote safety, education, and proficiency.

Every meeting consists of a scenario presentation and group discussion about unusual or interesting charts, changed rules and procedures, and member experiences.  We also have occasional guest speakers.

The scenario we will discuss at this meeting is: This month we will be discussing an IFR approach scenario at KCWC airport, which has only one approach, RNAV35. Unfortunately, winds (180@5) are favoring the opposite runway. The traffic pattern for VFR traffic may not match the IFR circling restrictions, so it will be a challenge to land safely with VFR traffic in the pattern.

Bring your EFB, your experience, and your questions, and be ready to participate.

All are welcome. You do not need to be an EAA member or instrument rated pilot to attend

We will also be discussing how you can earn WINGS Credit.

What is the EAA/IMC Club? 

EAA provides monthly program resources in the form of actual IMC related scenarios designed to encourage open discussion, and for all participants to answer the question “What would you do if this happened to you?” 

What is the purpose of EAA/IMC Club?

The purpose of EAA Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) Clubs is to promote instrument flying, proficiency, and safety. The intent is to create a community of pilots willing to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety, and build proficiency in instrument flying.

EAA IMC Clubs are extensions to local EAA chapters and offer monthly IMC program meetings where 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 fundamental element to the EAA/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.
