IMC/VMC club online meeting Thursday, May 4 at 7 pm PDT

Our online IMC/VMC club meeting for May will be held from 7 to 8 pm this coming Thursday, May 4.  The IMC “What Would You Do?” involves a morning departure from San Carlos airport while Bay Area fog is causing low IFR conditions, and a problem that develops right after takeoff. The VMC scenario is on the opposite side of the country, with a late afternoon VFR departure planned; while you are lined up for takeoff, a landing aircraft in front of you runs off the runway.

FAA Wings credit is available for this event by registering here.
