Don’t Get Upset, Recover!

IMC Club – Don’t Get Upset, Recover!

September 25, 2019 at 18:30 – 19:30

Dave Klopfleisch will lead a discussion on loss-of-control so we can keep the blue side up, even when we can’t see the blue. We will look at loss-of-control in various phases of flight:

  • Instrument takeoff
  • Climb out
  • En route
  • Initial and final approach

So, we’ll figure out our best answer to the infamous IMC Club question, “what would you do?”

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 head in the game.

Sponsored by Chicago Executive Pilots Association (CEPA).
