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 EAA Chapter 766 IMC Club meetings are held the 1st Monday of the month at the Aviation Heritage Center beginning at 6:30 pm.
The Redbird FMX, three-axis, full motion flight simulator at the Aviation Heritage Center is a great way to stay current with six Approaches and Hold. The simulator is available during museum hours. The Redbird FMX Simulator recently had a new updated computer installed to enhance flight simulation.
