EAA 96 VMC Club

EAA Chapter 96 is happy to announce a monthly VMC club opportunity for Non-instrument rated active pilots who want to improve their proficiency. This is a new resource through EAA’s VMC Club. (VMC Definition)

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 96 is providing monthly VMC Club meetings in which pilots can network and share knowledge and experience. We will use real-world scenarios to engage members, and allow a free exchange of information that improves awareness and skills. The intent is to create a community of pilots willing to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety, and build proficiency. We will open each meeting with a quick 5 – 10 minute video supplied by EAA national for the purpose of open discussion on the video subject matter.

The meetings will be held on the 1st Thursday of every month at 7:00pm in the Chapter 96 Conference room at the hanger. These meetings are free. A schedule of these meetings will be posted on the web site. For more information, you may contact the VMC coordinator, Richard Schleicher at 310-936-5055 or via e-mail at EAAVMC@actsworld.com.
