When you get to the security gate, simply tell the guard you are going to the EAA meeting, at Keith Phillip's Hangar, 222 Cessna Blvd. You will need a valid drivers license to enter the neighborhood. After checking in at the security gate, follow Spruce Creek Blvd to the second stop sign. Turn left onto Country Club Drive. Just past the country club facility, turn left on Seclusion Drive. Go 200 yards to the stop sign at the edge of the Cessna taxiway. Cross the taxiway being sure to give right-of-way to taxiing aircraft.
Once across the taxiway, turn right and drive to the end of Cessna. Hangar 222 will be on your left.
Special Homebuilders Meetings will try to be scheduled monthly. These meetings are about one hour in length and will cover topics for experimental and standard certified aircraft. Open to all Chapter Members and their guests. Details will be announced.
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.
THIS PAST MARCH VMC MEETING - FROM JOHN FOSTER
At the March VMC meeting Craig showed a very informative video dealing with loss of control. We received several favorable comments from those in attendance. The video lasts about 25 minutes, so while you are practicing your social distancing at home why not watch it? As a result of watching this video, I have changed my flying technique. This is the link to the YouTube video.
FUTURE VMC MEETINGS WILL BE DETERMINED BASED ON UPDATES ABOUT THE VIRUS

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,
