The IMC Club’s purpose is to promote instrument flying, proficiency, and safety.

You don’t have to be instrument rated to come to the IMC Club.

Non-instrument rated pilots who want to improve their proficiency now have an excellent new resource through EAA’s VMC Club.

2019 AirVenture Oshkosh @ Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH)
Jul 22 – Jul 28 all-day

To borrow an often over used movie line… “THIS IS IT!” Anyone who is passionate about aviation has to make this pilgrimage at least once in their life. There are literally 1000s of aircraft and 1000 of displays to see. Every era of aviation, every discipline of aviation, every technology related to aviation is on display at Oshkosh.

For those attending Oshkosh, we will meet up for our traditional Chapter Breakfast on the AirVenture grounds on Tuesday, July 23 at 8:00 AM, near the forums/workshop area. Area K-9 on the AirVenture map. This used to be Ace’s Bistro or Buca di Beppo, but now it’s called The Heart of American Group — Happy Joe’s and Johnny’s Italian Steak House.
