    EAA 582 Hosts VMC Club

    VMC Club will be held on every 2nd Thursday throughout the year.  Bring your 

    plotter and flight computer.

    VMC Club


    Non-instrument rated pilots who want to improve their proficiency now have an excellent new resource through EAA’s VMC Club. 

    The VMC Club is modeled after the popular IMC Club concept which provides organized “hangar flying” focused on building proficiency in instrument flying. The VMC Club will do the same, but for pilots who are not instrument rated and fly primarily under visual flight rules and under VMC. 

    The VMC Club offers monthly meetings in which pilots can network and share knowledge and experience. The meetings use real-world scenarios to engage members, and allow a free exchange of information that improves awareness and skills. The intent is to create a community of pilots willing to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety, and build proficiency.

    All EAA members are automatically eligible to take part in VMC and IMC Club programs in their local chapters. VMC Club is supported by Jeppesen.

    Getting to Oshkosh - Mine and Your Stories

    Our 15 Hour Flight, With Only an Intermittent Compass and a Sectional

    Dinner will be provided by Carolyn's catering at about $8 per person.  Please RSVP so we can have a meal there for you.  Leave your donation at the meeting.
    Menu: Chicken Paprikas, side dish and veggie.

    I would like to share the fun adventure Kevin Loeffler and I had flying to Oshkosh in 2018.  There is no better teacher than experience itself and there were plenty of lessons on this all day trip in this very small airplane.  Many of you have stories as well, which I would like to hear.

    Kevin and I flew Matthew Curcio's amphibious Aventura II with the intention to rendezvous with Matthew near Wittman field, where Matthew would fly it into the Seaplane base, as I do not have a seaplane rating.

    This presentation is meant to be a refreshing visit back to old-school navigation and flight planning; how a flight like this might be different from your typical trip in a well equipped cross-country machine; how we made a 6 1/2 hour car drive take 15 hours by air; whether it's cheaper to fly an airplane that sips only 7 gallons per hour vs a gas guzzler; how we handled it when our only navigation equipment, the compass, didn't work right; and how this trip resulted in a new aviation job for one of us.

    If you've ever been to EAA Airventure in Oshkosh Wisconsin, you know what a blast it is, especially for those interested in aviation.  Getting there, especially in an airplane, is at least half the fun.  I looked forward to flying home the whole time we were there.  

    Come hang out with your friends at EAA 582, have some dinner, and I'll share this story, and you share some of yours. 

    See you there!

    EAA 582 Hosts IMC Club

    IMC Club will be held on every 1st Thursday throughout the year.

    IMC Club


    IMC Clubs is the brainchild of Radek Wyrzykowski, a master certified flight instructor-instrument and multiengine instructor. As a flight instructor in Norwood, Massachusetts, Radek developed a volunteer mentor program to help instrument pilots improve their proficiency, and they loved it. "When the website launched and offered to help others start local chapters, it took off like a storm,” Radek said.

    The IMC Club’s 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.

    The chapter resources and scenarios are being produced and distributed as a new program by EAA IMC LLC (“EAA IMC”), an Experimental Aircraft Association Inc. subsidiary, under a license from IMC Club International Inc. This will provide resources for new and improved program offerings that will enhance and expand the impact of the IMC concept.

    To provide continuity, support, direction, and programming, Radek is now the manager of flight proficiency with EAA IMC. Being part of the EAA family will provide the network, critical mass, and resources to take flight safety and proficiency to the next level.  EAA IMC Club is supported by Jeppesen.
