Am I the only one who sees the irony in The Bug starting fights with two guys in a thread created by a guy who is on his "ignore" list?

IMC and IFR are different, you idiot.


IMC is a VFR flight that turns into in IFR flight due to idiot pilots...what's IMC when you have a VFR helicopter?

Make your rifle, your targets worst nightmare!

An emergency.

 

The type of airspace is irrelevant. Class G is uncontrolled so you can't file IFR in it, however that does not preclude one from going IMC, just like you can in all other airspaces.

 

Going IMC while flying VFR is largely a contingency that has to be accounted for, and is not because people are idiots. Sometimes you have to fly a departure out of your airfield, cancel IFR, do what you need to do VFR, and then pick up an approach back home. It's rare, but it does happen and people do plan for it. Not exactly on my "to do" list though.

If you have to refer to the gauges to fly the aircraft, you should be IFR. It doesn't matter whether the weather conditions are "VMC" or "IMC". I have been without useful visual reference under clear skies with 3 miles vis. Think flat light situations, for example.


Just a pilot (retired, so I have a LOT of time)...
