CEPA & Waukegan IMC Club Joint Chapter Meeting – July 2020
July 22, 2020 @ 18:30 - 19:25 CDT
A mid-summer trip between Chicago and Kansas City, what could go wrong? The weather at the destination was the main consideration when the go/no go decision was made. Things became very interesting very fast when lower clouds were experienced before getting out of Chicago. Having the XM weather in-op was to be a minor inconvenience but wasn’t so minor when the onboard iPad with ADS‑B weather overheated and shut down.
Time permitting, we’ll look at a second scenario, a quick breakfast flight to KBMI and back. There was a significant WX shift resulting in an uncomfortable encounter with ice on the return trip to KPWK. The pictures will make you shudder.
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).
