About IMC Club

The Central Ohio EAA/IMC Club was formed to accomplish three goals:

 

1. Share critical and timely technical information regarding instrument flight through video scenarios, group discussions, and expert presenters.

 

2. Foster a “culture of safety” among central Ohio aviators.

 

3. Set the occasion for IFR and VFR pilots to interact within a social environment. 

 

Meetings are held on the 4thWednesday of month, September through May, at the Quest Conference Center (8405 Pulsar Place, Columbus, OH 43240). Meetings are held from 7pm to 8:30pm. Meeting dates for November and December are adjusted earlier in the month to accommodate seasonal holidays. Refreshments are provided, and FAA WINGS credit is provided. There is no additional cost for attending. All pilot experience levels are welcome. IMC Club program coordinator is Tim Heron (thcfi.th@gmail.com).

November 14, 2018 Columbus Ohio IMC Club Meeting Signup Link - FAASTeam

Last month’s discussion focused on FAR 91.185(c) (Lost Comm) that included an arrival to the destination well ahead of the ETA. During this month’s meeting, we extend that NORDO discussion by introducing into the scenario an Off-Route Obstruction Clearance Altitude (OROCA) component during a long cross country flight transitioning large metropolitan areas in IMC conditions.  Discussion will center on locating and using all pilot-available pre- and in-flight electronic flight bag (EFB) tools to occasion a safe flight and compliance with 91.185 and 91.177.
