    Hello Members, Pilots and Friends,

    The first meeting of the Toledo Chapter of IMC Clubs was held on Monday January 27, 2014 at our EAA 582 hanger in the Tom Walsh library.


    Our Chapter hanger proved to be warm and cozy with great technology including surround sound and multi-media projection which worked perfectly for our lively presentations.

    IMC Clubs



    Second, we are operating as the Toledo Chapter of IMC Clubs.


    The website for IMC Clubs is http://www.imcclubs.com click Join Now and follow the instructions if you care to join as a member.


    The IMC Club is a membership based Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization focused on instrument rated pilots and flight instructors, with a network of chapters throughout the nation. At IMC Club our purpose is to promote instrument flying, proficiency and safety. Along with IFR flying and monthly local chapter meetings, we offer a resource rich website which provides an electronic experience base. Our intent is to create a community of pilots in order 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.



    Pilot Workshops



    Third, we are using Pilot Works for training content.  The training they provide is multi-media and Wings Certified for credit.


    To visit their website http://pilotworkshop.com/you can join as a subscriber of their free weekly Pilots Tips for you can subscribe to full content of your own if you want.  They currently have 40 training sessions on-line.


    We did #11 “Lost Comm at Teterboro” and number #40 “Foggy Night at Bridgeport”


    Both are scenario based training and provide for interactive group discussion with those in attendance.  Four options are presented for each scenario.  The group votes and the most popular option is submitted.  The group gets to learn how everyone else who took the scenario voted.  Over 600 pilots have looked at each scenario so you get to see how your discussion faired compared to all the others.  Full resources are provided for each scenario and four CFII instructors discuss each one afterwards.





    Please join us for our next scheduled IMC Club meeting of the Toledo Chapter at the EAA Chapter 582 hanger March, 24, 2014.
