Six New Chapters Established From California To North Carolina
IMC Club International will be opening additional Chapters across the nation in the next few weeks. Pilots will gather at CP Aviation in Santa Paula, CA on August 25th; RedBird Skyport in San Marcos, TX on September 13th, and MotionAir Aviation on September 14th in Midlothian, TX for the inaugural meetings. Also, new Chapters and meetings are planned for North Carolina, Nevada, Michigan, Alabama and Nebraska all of which will bring the total number of IMC Club Chapters to over thirty six! Prospective members will be given the opportunity to meet and interact with IMC Club founder and President Radek Wyrzykowski at each of these opening meetings.
The IMC Club is an organization dedicated to promoting safety and proficiency among its instrument rated members. The IMC Club encourages creation of local communities of pilots who meet to discuss topics and share information specific to instrument flying. Members call it “organized hangar flying" which promotes sharing of experience and encourages more and safer instrument aviation. The IMC Club acts as a network of pilots who share their knowledge and experience while learning from one another.
“We are building on our momentum and success from Oshkosh. I am so pleased with the pilot community’s reception and enthusiasm that we received at the 2012 AirVenture. I am certainly looking forward to our participation in future aviation events and gatherings.” – said Radek Wyrzykowski.
One of the primary goals of the IMC Club is to increase pilot confidence and proficiency by training in actual instrument conditions and then discuss their experiences in the environment of a chapter meeting. The club was established as a learning resource for instrument-rated pilots and for students pursuing their instrument ratings. To accomplish this, monthly meetings are held at local chapters around the country to help pilots and students build and maintain their IFR skills, and to share stories and tips from their fellow pilots.
