  • Website Maintenance
Many items have been removed since the server change earlier this year. They just don't work anymore. The items were on the left side lower menu area. They were: recent - videos, photos, members, posts & upcoming events.  
The mobile portion has also been turned off. The pairing of a free mobile provider not only resulted in pages from the site being incomplete it was also notoriously slow resulting in the pages not being loaded at all.

  • IMC Club News - Rich Mamrosh of the NWS GRB gave us an excellent presentation on SKEW-T diagrams and how they can provide supplemental information to the preflight and inflight WX sources. An excellent tool not only for the IFR pilot, but the VFR pilot too. With his permission & slight mods to remove copyrighted material the powerpoint presentation has been uploaded here so others may see it. You may get it here -

"Lady Lynn" made it to her new home in Germany! Eisenach-Kindel Airport (EDGE). We lost track of her between Narsarsuaq, Greenland (BGBW) and Wick, Scotland (EGPC). UPDATED - "Lady Lynn" landed in Keflavavik (BIKF) as assumed but required re-routing due to the strong winds aloft & fuel reserve requirements. Ferry pilots Klaus Plasa & Stephan Gottwald provided us with a PIREP of their epic journey - here.  Click on pictures below for more photos.
