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 July was a discussion based upon one of the IMC Club scenarios. It involved a flight in a Mooney M-20 from Kalamazoo, MI (KAZO) to Schaumburg Airport (06C) just west of Chicago, a single-runway airport without an instrument approach. The accepted procedure in IFR conditions is to fly an instrument approach to the DuPage, IL Airport (KDPA) and if the weather is at or above circling minimums, to break off the approach and “circle” to the Schaumburg airport 8 NM NE of Dupage. Weather, temperatures and fatigue made for an interesting scenario and discussion.
We are going to skip our IMC Club Meeting in August. The normal meeting date is within 24 hours of the North American total solar eclipse and a large percentage of the IMC Club members will be making their way to good viewing locations for the event. Please join us again in September.
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.
