New Aviation Event - IMC Club Monthly Chapter Meeting, San Marcos, TX - Thursday, Dec 18, 2014
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.

Pilot Destination Update - Sulphur Springs Municipal Airport, Sulphur Springs, TX
"I sponsored a small fly-in at KSLR over a weekend with four planes in attendance. The staff at the airport treated us like we'd been their best friends for years, and bent over backwards to give us any kind of assistance that we could think of. They made sure that the grass strip was manicured prior to our arrival, came out to us to gather our coolers so they could fill them with ice, coordinated with the CAP folks to allow us to use their building during our event...they connected us with some young folks that were interested in flying, that we took out on flights and answered questions for them. The only thing better would be to have had a larger turnout from the people in my group, the airport was the ticket. We will definitely be re-visiting KSLR, they're great folks." - Submitted by Paul D.

Featured Fun Place to FLY! Shelbyville Airport, Shelbyville, IN
"This was a quaint little airport in the middle of corn country. However, there is a good bonus. The Indiana Grand Casino is just down the street. If you call the casino when you land, they will send a white bus over to the airport to pick you up. It's a free ride, but the driver does accept tips. The buffet at the hotel is pretty good with a huge ion. The lunch buffet is around $11 and the dinner buffet is about $18. However, if you sign up for the casino's free rewards card, you get a free $5 gambling credit. So, not a bad deal. Also, an FYI, the short runway is grass. The long runway is concrete. All in all a good experience." - Submitted by Brian Staggs.
