IMC Club Opens a Manhattan Chapter
The newest IMC Club chapter comes to you. Located in the heart of Manhattan, New Your City at 99 Madison Ave, IMC Club Manhattan Chapter is hosted by the Manhattan Flight Club.
Staying proficient as a pilot in New York City presents a number of unique challenges...from long commutes to the airport to a limited flying season and the unpredictable northeast weather. The Manhattan Flight Club (www.manhattanflightclub.com)
“I've been lucky to have been around aviation since I was a kid, and was able to get my Private and Instrument by age 18. Flying provided a solid foundation and exposed me to a sense of responsibility and adventure that still drives me to this day. “ - said Taylor Jobe, the Manhattan Flying Club president, founder and the IMC Club Manhattan Chapter Leader.
“I want to say thank you to Taylor for volunteering his energy and resources and I can’t express enough how excited I am. It probably takes longer to drive a few blocks in New York City than to fly to maintain your proficiency once you are at the airport. Bringing Simulator resources and a discussion forum to the pilots is a genuinely great idea.” – said Radek Wyrzykowski, IMC Club President
IMC Club, through its worldwide chapters, provides organized “hangar flying” focused on building proficiency in instrument flying. It’s the only organization of its kind. The IMC Clubs concept is to bring together IFR-rated pilots who fly in the real-world “actual IMC” and provide them an opportunity to share stories, network with the larger pilot community, and gain valuable insights and tips for their IFR flying. All stories and scenarios produced by the club for use during chapter meetings are real and based on submission by their members. IMC Club Meetings provide a forum for promoting participation and discussion of IFR flying.
The first meeting of the IMC Club Manhattan group will be held in May of this year at Manhattan Flying Club (www.manhattanflightclub.com)
Since its inception in 2011 supported by the aviation industry members like Hartzel Propeller and Jeppesen a Boeing Company, IMC Club International grew from 4 pilots in Norwood, MA to over 2700 registered members and over 125 Chapters globally.
