The purpose of EAA Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) Clubs 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. EAA IMC Clubs are extensions to local EAA chapters and offer monthly IMC program meetings where pilots can network and share knowledge and experiences. Since 2017, instrument pilots have improved their proficiency through the EAA IMC club programs and they love it.
EAA provides monthly program resources in the form of actual IMC related scenarios designed to encourage open discussion, and for all participants to answer the question “What would you do if this happened to you?” Providing the opportunity for each IMC member participant to hypothetically place themselves into an actual IMC situation, and be involved in open discussion is the key to build proficiency and increase safety as a pilot. This is educational “hangar flying” at its’ best. Additional program offerings such as the “IMC Question of the Month” is a monthly thought provoking question designed to be a challenging and engaging educational question related to IFR operations.
Forming an EAA IMC club is easy. You are invited to begin your journey toward instrument flying, proficiency, and safety by reviewing the program resources below.
