IMC Club is Opening “IFR Practical Experience Reference Base”
IMC Club International has launched an IFR Airport Practical Tips Reference Base, a library of a “real life experiences” about arrival and departure to nations busiest and most challenging airports as well as rural airports.
The IMC Club International wants to encourage pilots to share their experiences.
All posts are based on actual experience of the pilot. They will be checked but not verified or endorsed by the IMC Club. They are going to be placed in a searchable database. This practical resource will be available for use by IMC Club members and other 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable aviation organizations to help their volunteer pilots plan and execute their charitable flights. If you feel that your organization would like to offer this information exchange to your volunteer pilots, please contact IMC Club directly.
Pilots submitting tips to the “IFR Practical Experiences Reference Base” will be rewarded with an entry to a drawing for a free Aviator II Sunglasses provided by Randolph Engineering. The newest IMC Club supporting corporate member. Originally built for the U.S. Military, the flagship Aviator surpasses rigid mil-spec standards. Standard issue since 1982, these are battle tested and relevant to the most rigorous and demanding use. Worn by pilots, tastemakers, and those who demand the best. Pilots can enter the contest by submitting as many practical experiences as they want, therefore increasing their chances to win.
“This database, like everything at the IMC Club, is real life driven,” said Radek Wyrzykowski, President of the IMC Club. “I hope that our members together with other pilots will step forward and regularly submit practical experiences that will specially help support public benefit flight. I know a lot of these great volunteers who often must fly IFR and IMC to totally unknown environments. As we know, practical aspects of a flight are as important, if not more so, as any textbook knowledge.”
The IMC Club is a membership-based, non-profit organization focused on instrument rated pilots and flight instructors, with a network of chapters throughout the world. The club’s intent is to create a community of pilots in order to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety and build proficiency in instrument flying.
