Radek and “Las Vegas IMC Musketeers”
Mike Radomsky instructs in various aircraft as well as the SimTrain Cirrus full-motion flight simulator for The Flight Academy. Founded in 2002 by Luke Lysen and John Fiscus, The Flight Academy established its Las Vegas facility as a state-of-the art flight center designed specifically to meet the need for skilled, specialized flight training in Cirrus aircraft nationwide. Their commitment to Cirrus pilot training is reflected in their close relationship with COPA, and their status as a Platinum Training Center, with three Platinum Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilots among their instructors, who are among the most skilled and experienced Cirrus pilots in the world.
Mike also serves on the Permanent Editorial Board of the Aviators Model Code of Conduct, a publication which is made available to all aviators and aviation organizations to enhance the ethics, citizenship, airmanship and training, essential to the interests of General Aviation. The AMCC is free.
Despite Mike’s close ties with the Cirrus community, members of his Las Vegas Chapter of IMC Clubs (they call themselves the “IMC Musketeers”) fly many types of airplanes. They range in age from 18 to 80, experience levels from rookie to retired Air Force jet pilots, with a wide range of professional backgrounds. What they have in common is a love of aviation in general and an enduring curiosity about the intricacies and challenges of instrument flight. The group meets every week to discuss flying and learn from each other.
"No words can express my admiration about how much dynamism and contribution to aviation safety this group was able to develop. Besides an involvement in the local aviation community, they were able to cultivate a unique friendship and energy." - said Radek Wyrzykowski, President of IMC Clubs.
When asked about the reason for the Las Vegas chapter’s success, Mike replied, "It’s really the members’ success story. The IMC Club Musketeers demonstrate an amazing passion for safety and the pursuit of aviation knowledge. Their dedication and enthusiasm is the reason for our continued growth.”
