Brief Description:

You are flying from KSMQ to KFOK via VFR waypoint BANKA.  You have trouble maintaining VFR at your assigned altitude in the Class B.  The frequency is extremely busy, ATC says they can only give you higher, not lower.  What would you do?

Let's discuss alternatives and options 

VMC Club, through its nationwide chapters, provides organized “hangar flying” focused on building proficiency in VFR flying. Believing that safety and proficiency are developed through education and experience. Monthly meetings use real world scenarios to engage our members and allow them to share and build their experience. For all pilots, student pilots and anyone thinking about flying.

What is the VMC Club?
VMC Club is the brain child of Radek Wyrzykowski; a Master Certified Flight Instructor Instrument and Multi-Engine Instructor. As a flight instructor in Norwood, Mass., Radek developed a volunteer mentor program to help pilots improve their proficiency, and they loved it.

What is the purpose of the VMC club?
At VMC Club, our purpose is to promote flying, proficiency and safety. Along with VFR flying and monthly local chapter meetings, we offer a resource-rich website which provides an electronic experience base.

Our intent is to create a community of pilots in order to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety and build proficiency in instrument flying. VMC Club Chapters offer monthly meetings in which pilots can network and share knowledge and experiences.

Do you need to bring anything?
First, bring your thoughts or story and be willing to share them with the group. This meeting is very interactive. Participation by the group is a key element to the VMC Club meeting.

Others have found it helpful to bring along a copy of their flight manual, GPS manual and charts. If you navigate with an iPad, bring it along.

Who can attend?
You don’t need a pilot certificate to attend. This meeting is open to all current, non-current, and future pilots.
