Pilot Destination Update - Suncoast Cafe, Venice, FL
"Sharkeys restaurant is very close to airport but too far to walk. There is a free shuttle! Very nice people at FBO only $10 if you don't buy gas or eat at their cafe. Worth it to go to Shakeys for lunch or if you go to beach" - Submitted by Jimsak.

Pilot Destination Update - Westgate's River Ranch, River Ranch, FL
"Flew there last weekend with another pilot, a first visit for both of us. The staff was very friendly and they gave us a ride in the golf cart from the airstrip to the main lodge where we could rent a golf cart for a few hours for about $11. It's well worth getting one if available if you're planning on cruising around the ranch it's fairly spread out. There are plenty of activities to enjoy some free and some for a fee. After hearing about our trip, my wife and I flew back down the next weekend and spent the afternoon. It's their off season so it wasn't crowded and was very relaxing. The airport is easy to get in and out of and there are no parking fees. There's only a handful of tie-downs, but a staff member told us that they've accommodated over 100 planes before during a fly-in. We were also told that they do have pilot-controlled runway lights for night operations. This airstrip makes for a nice day trip." - Submitted by Justin.

Pilot Destination Update - Hard Eight BBQ, Stephenville, TX
"Went here on 11/26/2014. There were no golf carts, but the people from Hard Eight came and picked us up quickly. Good BBQ place. Sort of crowded around noon but the entire hold up was the fact that they had one person taking and filling orders for everyone that came in. Other that standing outside and waiting 35 minutes just to place our order, all was good." - Submitted by Steve.

Meets the 3rd Thursday of the Month at 6 PM. IMC Club International is a membership based 501c3 non-profit started to increase pilot confidence and proficiency by training in actual instrument conditions and discuss their experience in the environment of a chapter meeting. The club was established as a learning resource for instrument-rated pilots, and for students pursuing their instrument ratings. To accomplish this, monthly meetings are held at local chapters around the country to help pilots and students build and maintain their IFR skills, and to share stories and tips from their fellow pilots. The IMC Club Chapter at Redbird Skyport is designed to create a community of pilots in central Texas that share information, provide recognition, foster communication, promote safety, and build proficiency in instrument flying. Every month the Chapter will discuss an issue or situation as a group and the situation discussed will have a corresponding simulator scenario available all month to members that attend the meeting. The $3 monthly dues allow access to a Members Only section of the IMC Club website with an interactive knowledge database. Active members that attend the monthly meeting get 1 hour of full-motion simulator time to practice the situation in focus that month at no cost.
