The forum’s open format, which began at this year’s Oshkosh AirVenture, is now known as The IMC Club Open Chapter Meeting. This Meeting will follow a regular IMC Club Chapter Meeting format, with a focus on IFR proficiency and the decision-making process through an organized discussion of real life experiences that pilots encounter in instrument flight.
The concept behind the IMC Club is to create local communities of instrument rated pilots, and aspiring instrument pilots, around the country and around the world, who discuss topics and share information relative to instrument flying. This "organized hangar flying" promotes the sharing of information and experience among members.
The event is being organized and hosted by Robin Johnston, an instrument-rated private pilot who is actively involved in Tallahassee’
“For someone to find a safety pilot to fly with, we have to have someone else willing to be one,” says Wyrzykowski. “Joining the IMC Club is not just about gaining access to all the tools that we create. It is primarily about becoming a part of, and supporting, a group of pilots that believe in helping one another.”
“I am very excited about this IMC Club Open Chapter Meeting, and hope that this leads us to form a regular chapter here in Tallahassee,”
One of the primary goals of IMC Club is to increase pilot confidence and proficiency by training in actual instrument conditions. 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.
