IMC CLubs Leads The Way To OSH14 Special Event Coverage

IMC Clubs: Building Instrument Proficiency Through Community

When it comes to flying, there is no substitute for proficiency and training. And maybe nowhere is that more important than instrument flying. Things happen "in the soup," and can go south pretty quickly. A well-trained and proficient instrument pilot is a much safer instrument pilot. But sometimes, without a support system, it's easy to say "well, I'll go shoot the practice approaches next time." The IMC Club may be just the support system that pilots need. On their website, they say the purpose of the organization is to "promote instrument flying, proficiency and safety. Along with IFR flying and monthly local chapter meetings, we offer a resource rich website which provides an electronic experience base.

Life-Saving OSH2014 Sponsor: BRS Parachutes

BRS Parachutes: Defining Aviation Safety

It's a simple idea, really. A parachute which will, when deployed, turn what could be a very bad situation into one in which not only the occupants, but in many cases the airplane, survive. That's the concept behind the full-airframe parachutes for the general aviation market manufactured by BRS Aviation. Prior to 1975, few had attempted to implement the idea to design a parachute for an aircraft, even though it had been talked about for nearly a century. In that year, Boris Popov of Saint Paul, Minnesota, survived a 400-foot fall in a collapsed hang glider. The event led Popov to invent the whole-aircraft parachute system and to found Ballistic Recovery Systems (BRS) in 1980.
