Our chapter offers an IMC Club for our members interested in improving their flying in instrument conditions.
The IMC Club’s purpose 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.
The IMC Club monthly programming is developed and produced by EAA, but it does not use a lecture or presentation format. Instead, an actual scenario is presented and is followed by a group discussion – so audience participation is encouraged! Since everyone has a different experience level and different airplane capabilities, we can all benefit from the discussion.
The pandemic restrictions knocked out our IMC Club for over a year. But they were resumed in April 2021 with "Virtual" Zoom IMC Club sessions. It is hoped to eventually resume In-Person IMC Club meetings at the Aero Safety Training headquarters at Lincoln Park, NJ, Airport.
Check the calendar of events on Chapter 501's main web page www.eaa501.org for the monthly date/times. If you are signed up to receive emails from FAA's FAASTeam you can expect an email from them announcing the IMC Club meetings.
