IMC Meeting December 13, 2017 at 7:00 pm Quest Conference Center

Our next meeting of the Columbus Chapter EAA/IMC Club is slated for December 13th at 7:00 pm at the Quest Conference Center (8405 Pulsar Place, Columbus, OH 43240).   


At this meeting, a distinguished panel of Instrument instructors and aviators, including Tom Baxter, Alex Bettinger, Mike Carr, Paul Palmisciano, Kathy Samuelson, Mike Stretanski, and Dick Wetherald, will share their indelible IFR/IMC 'lessons.' I will serve as moderator for the panel.  


Every flight provides the basis for a “lesson.” Some lessons are transitory; others leave an indelible impression as the “lesson” permanently changes the way we approach future flights. Our panel of distinguished instrument aviators and instructors will share their unforgettable experiences by detailing the circumstances of “their lesson,” stating how the lesson affected their future flights, and offering recommendations to incorporate into our standard operating procedures (SOPs) to ensure safer flight.
