Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our chapter. We are a group of central aviation enthusiasts, aircraft builders, and pilots who get together with like minded people to share ideas, exchange information, encourage safety, serve the local aviation community and have a lot of fun doing so. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest.

Our next meeting of the Columbus Chapter EAA/IMC Club is slated for February 28, 2018 at 7:00 pm at the Quest Conference Center (8405 Pulsar Place, Columbus, OH 43240).
Our EAA/IMC Club is delighted that Dr. Judith Van Zante, will serve as our featured speaker.
Dr. Van Zante is NASA's Icing Engineering Tech Lead at the Glenn’s Icing Research Tunnel and Propulsion Systems Lab located in Cleveland, OH. The abstract of Dr. Van Zante appears below.
NASA researchers have long recognized that unchecked ice accumulation affects an airplane’s lift, airflow, stability, and overall performance. They also acknowledge that flight crews, and especially GA pilots, may not fully understand the implications of flying in icing conditions. This presentation will focus on how general aviation IFR and VFR pilots can acquire, analyze, and evaluate icing sources before and during flight. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of taking off with a clean aircraft, the hazards of in-flight icing, and how to quickly detect and exit icing conditions. The goal is to help pilots make good decisions.
This presentation will be a FAA Wings program. To sign up for FAA Wings credit please go to the following site: https://www.faasafety.gov/SPANS/event_details.aspx?eid=81186&caller=/SPANS/events/EventList.aspx?zip=43228&rad=100
