At the meeting, prospective members will be given the opportunity to interact with IMC Club founder and President Radek Wyrzykowski.
“I am overwhelmed and very excited by the incredible response of the General Aviation community to our IMC Club safety initiative and mission. I strongly believe that the only person who can best help a pilot become safe, proficient and proficient is another pilot. By creating these face to face social groups, we allow people to do just that.” – said Radek Wyrzykowski.
In the next few weeks, IMC Club International Inc. will be opening additional Chapters in Quincy, IL (January 19), Lakeville, MN (January 24), and Columbus, GA (February 27). Additional Chapters and meetings are planned for South Carolina, Colorado, California and Florida, all of which will bring the total number of IMC Club Chapters to more than 55, almost double the number from the same time last year.
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" that 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.
