CEPA IMC Club – October 2021
October 27, 2021 @ 18:30 - 19:30 CDT
Monthly IMC Club at PWK – Marc Epner – Severely Shaken by Richmond
Topic: Even the best plans can fall apart, Ice and then turbulence, what would you do?
It’s been a brutal flight. Every smart move to evade the ice, and then the turbulence, worked at first and then fell apart. You make the smart move to divert, only to find the weather relents on final approach. Now you’re on the ground wondering if one more “smart” move would bring victory or catastrophe.
Speaker bio: Marc Epner is a 2,200-hour instrument-rated pilot, who earned his initial pilot rating in 1976. After a 25 year hiatus, he rekindled his love of aviation in 2004, became a partner in an SR-22, helped to start Leading Edge Flying Club, and co-hosts the Simple Flight Radio show, a podcast now in its tenth season. Marc shares his passion and his advocacy for general aviation through his presentations, writing, and flying. Marc will present an IFR situation and lead an audience discussion of “What Would You Do?” different, better, safer, smarter. Join in and help us all learn.
A Safety Meeting presentation by Kyle Lewis (AOPA) will follow the IMC Club.
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.
