EAA IMC/VMC Clubs Reach Friendship From Afar
April 2, 2020 - EAA Chapter 931 in Friendship, Wisconsin, took part in a remote IMC/VMC Club concept presentation while practicing responsible social distancing thanks to the wonders of internet teleconferencing.
EAA manager of flight proficiency Radek Wyrzykowski conducted a remote presentation to introduce the chapter to the EAA IMC/VMC Club programs. Using Zoom, Radek was able to reach the chapter without anyone involved needing to leave their homes. Radek said the meeting was very successful, including a spirited discussion following one of the IMC/VMC scenarios, and it resulted in Chapter 931 forming a VMC Club with plans to meet remotely in the short-term.
"Our EAA IMC and VMC Club philosophy was always based on guided discussion with personal interaction," Radek said. "I know now that we can preserve this spirit in this uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic."
Radek said based on the success of this first remote presentation, he hopes to get the entire network of IMC/VMC Clubs conducting meetings in the same fashion, and is planning on instructing program coordinators on how to do so.
