CEPA IMC Club – Going Up or Down – January
January 22, 2020 @ 18:30 - 19:30
From the initial planning, it was obviously not going to be a picturesque flight. There were weather systems around but they did seem manageable. Warren departs, climbs to 8,000 as he heads on course, steps up to 11,000 and then the fun begins, first ice and then a whole colorful cocktail of weather in a very unusual pattern! Spoiler alert: a tornado is involved here.
What would you do?
Our very own Warren Bruhl, DC, presents a flight he submitted to IMC Club. He is a practicing chiropractor, wellness and health care professional. Warren started flying in 2015 and now holds a Commercial Single Engine Airplane certificate with an Instrument rating. He is hard at work getting his multi with his eye on an ATP. His plan is to transition to a full-time aviation career and is flying 300-plus hours per year! Warren is a board member and secretary of the Chicago Executive Pilots’ Association (CEPA). He also runs a not-for-profit charitable organization and does missionary work in Kenya, teaching aviation topics to young, eager students.
IMC Club: The IMC Club’s purpose is to promote instrument flying, proficiency, and safety. The intent is to create a community of pilots willing to share their perspective, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety, and build proficiency in instrument flying. An IFR rating is not needed to participate in this excellent forum where we think through the various options from the comfort of your chair, firmly on the ground… before it is you sitting in the cockpit.
We meet monthly when pilots (and would-be pilots) network and share knowledge and experiences to keep our heads in the game.
Sponsored by Chicago Executive Pilots Association (CEPA).
