We will be meeting at our usual spot – the NV Wing CAP Headquarters building at 601 S. Rock. Join us for our IMC Club scenario discussions at 6 PM.
Our meeting in May was a discussion based upon one of the IMC Club scenarios. It involved a flight in a Cirrus from Hyannis, MA to Linden, NJ. We discussed the options for an IFR departure from Hyannis, looked at the filed route and then analyzed the only approach available at Linden, a GPS circling approach. The general consensus was that the pilot really should have spent more time in preflight planning, particularly in reviewing the approach to be flown.
We have arranged with the Reno FAASTeam Program Manager to include this meeting on the FAASafety.gov website listing of safety presentations and to provide Wings Program credit to those who attend the IMC Club meeting. If you wish to receive Wings credit just annotate the sign-in roster and provide the email you have associated with your FAASafety.gov account.
Our Club meetings will continue to be conducted in a guided discussion format rather than a lecture series so that each member of the group can have a chance to give their views and ask questions based upon their experience level.
