The objective of The Memphis IMC Club is to help make you a safer and more competent instrument pilot. Here’s the flight plan for the Tuesday, October 11th, 7 PM CDT, Memphis IMC Club Meeting via Zoom.
**Exercise – Are You Legal?** We will review basics for staying legal with the FAA.
**Scenario #1 – Dangerous Game of Tag**. You are established on final approaching the VDP for the RNAV Rwy 04 approach at KMGJ, Montgomery NY. You've switched to CTAF and are still in IMC. Suddenly, you hear a 172 on frequency calling left base for the same runway. You can't see him visually and he's not showing on ADS-B. Due to ATC delays (and poor planning?), you're down to just 30-min (maybe) of fuel. What do you do?
**Scenario #2 – Trust Your Training.** You’ve got 950-hrs in your logbook with 43-hrs simulated instrument and 9-hrs actual IMC. Unfortunately, you experienced a layoff from flying. You’ve stayed legally current with an FAA-approved simulator, but it’s been 18-mo since you last flew IFR in an airplane. Even longer since you flew in the clouds. You are now planning a trip to Atlantic City NJ with a couple of buddies. Forecast is 400’ overcast and 1-sm visibility. Tomorrow’s forecast is good-VFR but delaying departure will cut into the length of your trip. What do you do?
I just want to say thank you to all of those who flew in and out of Columbia Regional and Columbia Jet Center in the month of September. You helped us controllers at COU break a record for traffic! Hope to see y’all October 15th for our Chili Cook-Off!
