    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.

    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.

    Hello Boys and Girls,                                      

        It is that time for our annual fund raiser, Plane Fun Festival on Father’s Day weekend, June 15 and 16.  In addition to airplane rides and children activities we will be working in conjunction with, “The Armed Forces,” a veterans support charity.   They will be running a marathon on the airport on Sunday.  My hope is that our two organizations can support one another to make each event more successful.

        Some of the things we need help with are making parachutes, coloring and flying small wooden gliders, racing string planes, shooting off air rockets, jump rope, and hula hoops to name a few..

        We are making an appeal for volunteers to help run our activities.  We need people that are interested in working with children and helping them color and assemble various aviation toys and projects.  We need all types of volunteers but especially if you have a daughter, niece, or neighbor girl that would work with kids for the afternoon, it would be great.  Have them register as a volunteer for the event, the community would greatly appreciate it.
