Chapter 5

7G8 Middlefield, OH

IMC/VMC Club

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.

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.

What is IMC and VMC Club?

IMC Club started in 2010

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.

VMC Club started in 2017

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.

Chapter 5 combines the two clubs so there is something for everyone in every meeting! Give us your feedback-let us know if you like or dislike this format.
