Club Aircraft

Aircraft in Club livery

Some members fly the default Flight Simulator Aircraft, while others have chosen other types, or experimented with customising liveries, panels and gauges. All the aircraft for which Club liveries have been created are described and illustrated here. For payware aircraft, the download is for the Club Livery only and the link is "Download Club Livery". If necessary, you must purchase the aircraft from the reseller, for whom a link is also provided. For freeware aircraft, the whole aircraft may included in the download for simplicity of installation, and the link then is "Download Aircraft". The aircraft are listed by Registration in alphabetical order.

The Club's 2-4-CIX Display Aircraft are listed separately under Operations: 2-4-CIX Aircraft.


Piper PA38 Tomahawk

Registration: G-CIXA

The Piper Tomahawk is an aircraft designed specifically for pilot training. It is also an aircraft you either like or dislike. Plus points are good visibility, and it is easy to land well. Negative points are tricky slow flight handling and spin recovery plus a constant tinny drumming whilst in flight in some models. Club livery by Tim Arnot.

The model illustrated is from the Just Flight Flying Club series, and is a payware add-on for FS9 and FSX. Download Club Livery.
