Chapter 414

Lake County, IL


The IMC Club provides organized “hangar flying” focused on building proficiency and safety in instrument flying. We will discuss real-world instrument scenarios and how you can mitigate the risk of your instrument flying.  It emphasizes the development of critical thinking and flight management skills.  Safety and proficiency are further developed by pilots sharing their knowledge and experiences.  This is a program developed by a master certified flight instructor-instrument and multiengine instructor for EAA (click here for more information from the EAA website).

All pilots are welcome and you do not have to be instrument rated to attend. Meetings will be held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (check our Calendar for locations and times). 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 IMC Club monthly programming is developed and produced by EAA, but it does not use a lecture or presentation format. Instead an actual scenario is presented and is followed by a group discussion – so audience participation is encouraged! Since everyone has a different experience level and different airplane capabilities, we can all benefit from the discussion.

Join us for an opportunity to build community with your fellow pilots and learn about issues important to your success as a pilot.  Bring your iPad or tablet if you want to follow the simulation. 

Pilots, your participation may qualify for WINGS credit!  Check here to register with FAASTeam for upcoming IMC Club seminars.
