The August EAA Chapter 1361 sponsored VMC Club meeting will be conducted at 6 pm on August 1st in the Community/EOC room of the Reno-Stead Terminal building at 4895 Texas Avenue.
We had a great discussion at our August meeting involving operations at a towered airport in Washington. A pilot with a passenger found themselves in an unsafe situation. With only the minimum legal fuel reserves available they found the crosswinds at their destination higher than the maximum permissible for their aircraft. The discussion centered around possible ways out of their predicament using the resources available. As always, the ultimate responsibility for a safe flight rests with the pilot in command.
VMC Club is a program of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). Continued attendance at VMC Club discussions requires a membership in the EAA National organization. Local EAA Chapter (Chapter 1361) membership is encouraged to support the efforts of Chapter members in presenting VMC Club materials.
Light refreshments will be available.
