Chapter 1541’s first meeting of its IMC club on June 5 was attended by nineteen pilots who braved 99 degree temps to discover that the chapter hangar’s new fans and insulation made the meeting space “almost comfortable” in spite of the day’s heat. This first session included discussion of two video vignettes provided by EAA national of actual flights. The first was a new owner of an old Cessna that encountered an unforecast snowstorm at night, over the wide open spaces of Wyoming. The second was a departure in fog from Shelter Cove on the northern California coast, where the pilot lost situational awareness of the terrain. A lively interchange was moderated by CFII Randy Sharp and IMC club coordinator Dan Masys, as participants talked about how they would have reacted in the same circumstances.
The IMC club will meet monthly, with the next two sessions scheduled for Wednesday, July 10 and Wednesday, August 14 at 19:00. FAA Wings program credit will be available for those who attend.
