CEPA IMC Club – September 2021

September 22, 2021 @ 18:30 - 19:30 CDT

PWK IMC Club presents Ryan Jaros – Chicago Approach – Insider edition

Topic: You’ve heard the voices, join us to learn all the inner workings of Chicago Approach.

The September IMC Clubs meeting brings Chicago Approach controller, Ryan Jaros, back to the frequency once again. Ryan will moderate a discussion about IFR-related scenarios in and around the Chicago Class B as well as field questions from our members about IFR flight from a controller’s perspective, but he is one of the special ones who is also a pilot. If there was something that you had wanted to do but didn’t know how to request it, when the best time, or maybe you just want to learn more about Air Traffic Control and how they make their decisions. Join us to learn everything you wanted to know about Chicago’s Air Traffic Control system.

Speaker  bio: Ryan Jaros is an Air Traffic Controller at the C90 TRACON (or Chicago Approach, as we know it) in Elgin, Illinois. He began his career working as a controller in Miami, Florida, in 2007. Ryan is also a private pilot.


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.
