Flooded in the Air will – in an IMC Club format – address what might happen next after a twin-engine Beech 18S (Twin Beech) equipped with nearly the original steam gauge cockpit and two VORs flies through areas of heavy precipitation. As the big twin approaches its destination – Baltimore International Airport – a significant amount of water begins leaking through the windshield and soaks all the instruments. Electronic gear begins failing. It will be your job to figure out what to do next.

Speaker: Dave Klopfleisch

Following the IMC Club, through the Wings Program and the FAA, Dave will be awarded The Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award. We would like to invite all attendees to participate and congratulate Dave on this incredible accomplishment.

Dave started flying in 1966 at Roselle Airport, now called Schaumburg Airport in Schaumburg, IL. He served in the Navy 1968-1974 with his last duty station at Miramar, CA. In the Navy, Dave flew the TA-4, single engine attack jet. Afterwards, Dave worked for various corporate flight departments and served as the Safety Officer at the NAS Glenview Flying Club from 1993-1996. Dave’s flight resume includes:: CFI and MEI, ATP, Part 121 Flight Dispatcher, current Safety Officer at Chicago Executive Flight School. Dave also teaches an Upset Recovery Course in his aerobatic Beechcraft Sundowner, helping pilots increase their skills and attain a better understanding of why stalls, spins and spirals occur and how to safely recover from them.

The 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.

Due to this being a hybrid meeting, there are only 35 physical seats available at the venue, please make sure you are registering for the correct event as indicated in the event description.
