EAA Chapter 9 IMC meeting will be October 24, 2018 at the Quest Conference Center starting at 7:00 pm

The next IMC Meeting will be October 24, 2018 at the Quest Conference Center starting at 7:00 pm.

 Paul Palmisicano and Tim Heron will team up to explore the options available to instrument pilots when two events conspire against the pilot. An abstract of our meeting appears below:

Virtually every IFR clearance begins with the words “Cleared as filed,” meaning that you’ve been cleared to your destination airport. In most situations, you receive radar vectors from ATC, or you request an approach to reach your destination, and everything works out well. However, what happens when you lose communications with ATC and simultaneously expect to arrive at your destination well in advance of your ETA (you experienced stronger tailwinds than anticipated)?  Where do you go? What do you do?  We’ll examine FAR 91.185 (c) (3) from several perspectives. Our video scenario, and group discussion, will examine your options under these circumstances. 

Also, our session will underscore key changes to FARs that affect instrument pilot currency and key training regulations changes that recently went into effect.
