IPC and ATC: We All Goof
The weather was so nice that everybody was out practicing instrument procedures while I was getting an IPC. And the controllers were trying to keep us all happy all the time.
After a few days of unusually nasty weather, the day of my postponed IPC dawned bright and clear. There wasn’t even much wind. It was the perfect day to fly, and as it turned out, it seemed like just about every other pilot around thought the same thing. There was traffic everywhere and everyone wanted something different. I was caught in a perfect storm.
