VMC CLUB - VFR FLIGHT SCENARIOS DISCUSSION
WITH Jay Steffenhagen
EAA has recently rolled out nationally a new program / chapter type called the VMC Club. The idea is to present one or more VFR flight scenarios to the group for discussion, under the guidance of a flight instructor. The scenarios are presented as a short video, and are designed to confront the VFR pilot with making difficult decisions on how / whether to initiate or continue the flight.
There are no right or wrong answers, but the group gets to define and evaluate the risks and sort out the best way to proceed.
In addition, there will be several "Questions of the Month" on rules and regulations and recommended operating procedures.
This is our first meeting using this concept, so come out and offer your experience and opinions to the group. If this initial trial run of the VMC Club works out, we will plan to offer it on a periodic basis in our monthly meetings.
