January 9 (Mon) 7:00pm The Collective - Avoiding the Dangers of IIMC

Event Date: 
Monday, January 9, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Join us on Monday, January 9th, at 7:00pm for another session of The Collective, SCFC’s helicopter pilot group.  A group of helicopter pilots and instructors that come together periodically to talk about helicopter lessons, helicopter flying, and helicopter adventures.  We know that we are a special breed, somewhat apart from the world of fixed-wing aviation, and a special breed sometimes needs a special meeting place.  That's us, The Collective, rising together into the world of helicopter flight.



  • Tim Tucker's Performance Pad Pro by Merrick Vander Lugt
  • R22 Quiz by Ryan Williams
  • Avoiding the dangers of IIMC
San Carlos Flight Center Helicopter Team will give us an in-depth look into Inadvertent IMC (Instrument Meteorological Conditions). Using references from the International Helicopter Safety Team, we will discuss some key topics such as how to avoid IIMC, and what immediate actions you should take should you encounter IIMC. As well as discussion on scenario based and simulator based training methods, which will no doubt aid in real world flying. 
The Collective is a group of helicopter pilots, for helicopter pilots, by helicopter pilots.  Occasionally, we let a helicopter enthusiast in that is not yet a pilot, but mostly we keep to ourselves.  Finally, we have a place to come together, learn about cool topics in more detail, listen to exciting guest speakers, analyze specific accidents or events in the industry, and have engaging conversations about everybody's aviation story.
