CIX VFR Club Banner


Club Aircraft for FSX and P3D

The Club endorses the freedom of flight by permitting members to fly anywhere, any time, in almost any thing! Our only restrictive rule is that the aircraft flown must be in the "Light" category - less than 5,700Kg in all-up weight.

So here are some of the aircraft we all love and fly. They are all either FSX default or freeware models. Most of them will also work in Prepar3D v4. Feel free to fly them yourself, and if you are not a member of the Club - why not join us?

New liveries for different aircraft are always welcome. Just contact the Club CEO on the Club Forum.
