November 14, 2017 Meeting

When: Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Where: The Lion’s Den, Exeter
Agenda: 19:00 – A short business meeting followed by our guest speaker.
Topic: Radek Wyrzykowski, EAA Manager of Flight Proficiency, speak about the VMC Club and run a sample VMC Club meeting.  For the VMC Club he prepares a monthly VFR flying scenario in video format, pilots then discuss what they would do if presented with the situation.  The goal is to make flying safer by sharing knowledge and experience. 
Notes: vmc-clubThe 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.
