What's IMC Club?  

It's about 15-25 pilots sitting around discussing our aeronautical decision making opinions about how we might handle challenging IMC situations.  The idea is to gain knowledge by thinking about potential IFR problems and  listening to the ideas of fellow aviators .

Its purpose is to promote instrument flying, proficiency, and safety. The intent is to create a community of pilots willing to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety, and build proficiency in instrument flying.  IMC Club chapters offer monthly meetings in which pilots can network and share knowledge and experiences.

If you like "Hangar Flying" you'll like IMC Club meetings.
