Non-instrument rated pilots who want to improve their proficiency now have an excellent new resource through EAA’s VMC Club.
The VMC Club offers monthly meetings in which pilots can network and share knowledge and experience. The meetings use real-world scenarios to engage members, and allow a free exchange of information that improves awareness and skills. The intent is to create a community of pilots willing to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety, and build proficiency. All Chapter 288 members, in good standing, are automatically eligible to take part in the FREE VMC and IMC Club program.
All pilots are always welcome. If you have any questions, please contact Craig Cousins at email@example.com
CHAPTER 288 HAS RESUMED THE IN-PERSON IMC MEETINGS.
The last one was Thursday, September 9 in the POA conference room. The address is 212-1 Cessna Blvd. These are great times to sharpen your Instrument Meteorological Conditions skills. Come next time and be part of the discussion.
The IMC main scenario was flying on an IFR flight into areas of thunderstorms and methods to deviate using cockpit resources. This was valuable information for flying in Florida, please come by next time and participate. Check for time and the subjects to be discussed.
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 chapter resources and scenarios are being produced and distributed as a new program by EAA IMC LLC (“EAA IMC”), an Experimental Aircraft Association Inc. subsidiary, under a license from IMC Club International Inc. This will provide resources for new and improved program offerings that will enhance and expand the impact of the IMC concept and to provide continuity, support, direction, and programming,
All instrument pilots are welcome including wannabes and others looking to gain knowledge when the windscreen becomes milky and the vis disappears. We all can learn from the workshop discussions concerning the presented scenarios.
