    IMC Club Scenarios

    Do ant other IMC Club Coordinators feel that the IFR scenario content has little to do with flying the real world IFR? I've been a coordinator since before the EAA took over the IMC Clubs. The many of the scenarios in the last couple of years require little thought and ADM. I've actually had to create extra content to promote more discussion.
    Titles like - Door Ajar, Unstable RPM, Shaky Flight and Cutlass Gear Issue and not conducive to much group discussion.
    Even the Questions of the Month are not relative specifics about flying IFR!

    Latest Question of the Month....

    Question: "How much does a change in aircraft weight affect stall speed? For example, if an aircraft witha maximum gross weight of 2,000 pounds stalls at 50 knots, how much would stall speed change (and in
    what direction) if it were at an actual weight of 1,800 pounds?"

    Where does this fit into learning and discussion about flying IFR? This would be a better to[pic for the VMC club!

    IMO you'd better off rolling your own discussion off of IFR Magazine topics, PilotWorkshop IFR scenarios, or even the Opposing Bases Podcast show topics.
