The Chapter holds monthly meetings of EAA's VMC and IMC Clubs where pilots discuss flight safety under either "Visual" or "Instrument" weather conditions and rules. Both are open to the public.

The VMC Club meets the first Sunday at 6:30 pm. While usually held in the chapter hangar, in the coldest months these are sometimes held in the FBO lobby, in the building next to the public parking lot. Please see the calendar listings on the home page.

The IMC Club meets the second Sunday at 6:00 pm and always meets in the chapter hangar.
