As an IFR pilot based at BJC, I tend to find myself longing for actual IMC sometimes! It seems as though it’s VFR all the time, and when it’s not, there are unfavorable conditions for icing.

As a pilot looking for actual IFR at KBJC, statistically the most likely time to find it is in the early mornings of late spring or early summer where nearly 1/3rd of our days are likely to start with IMC.

The great news for VFR pilots is that the heart of the summer is unlikely to see much IMC – but it is possible to catch a lot of afternoon thunderstorms!
