Don't Get Caught With Your Head in the Clouds
That's less than 3 minutes to get yourself safely out of an IMC condition.
AOPA’s Air Safety Institute (ASI) is kicking off a safety campaign to raise awareness of the risks of VFR in IMC.
ASI calls these flights most significant cause of weather-related accidents
VFR into IMC is among the top 5 causes of fatal GA accidents – which are largely preventable
About one-third (1/3) are instrument -rated pilots!
Often thought of as a single cause, VFR into IMC plays a role in several other types of accidents, including loss of control in-flight (LOC-I) and controlled flight into terrain (CFIT).
Why chance it?
Come in for a refresher on the importance of VFR - IMC
What will we cover?

How to avoid getting trapped
How to safely exit
How to prevent a "repeated experience"
What's the cost?

3 hour Refresher in the Simulator - $351
