CEPA IMC Club – Flooded in the Air – January 2022

January 26, 2022 @ 18:30 - 19:30 CST

PWK IMC Club presents Dave Klopfleisch

January 26, 2022, at 18:30-19:30

Flooded in the Air will, in an IMC Club format, address what might happen next after a twin-engine Beech 18S (Twin Beech) equipped with nearly the original steam gauge cockpit and two VORs flies through areas of heavy precipitation. As the big twin approaches its destination – Baltimore International Airport – a significant amount of water begins leaking through the windshield and soaks all the instruments. Electronic gear begins failing. Single or twin, this could be you and we have to answer the IMC Club question always asked, what would you do?

And following the IMC Club, through the WINGS Program and the FAA, we will celebrate Dave’s lifetime achievement when he will be awarded The Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award. We would like to invite all attendees to participate and congratulate Dave on this incredible accomplishment.

Speaker bio: Dave Klopfleisch 

Dave started flying in 1966 at Roselle Airport, now called Schaumburg Airport in Schaumburg, IL. He served in the Navy from 1968-1974, with his last duty station at Miramar, CA. In the Navy, Dave flew the TA-4, single-engine attack jet. Afterward, Dave worked for various corporate flight departments and served as the Safety Officer at the NAS Glenview Flying Club from 1993-1996.

Flight Qualifications include: CFI and MEI, ATP, Part 121 Flight Dispatcher, current Safety Officer at Chicago Executive Flight School


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.
