CIX VFR Club Banner


Information provided by the Club

This section of the website consists of a list of links to essential, useful and interesting additions to the basic flight simulator. It is presented in two ways. On this page, the three links to Software, Scenery and Miscellaneous items take you to pages containing links in those subjects for ALL the main simulators. However, if you want to look at, say, just FSX downloads, then click the Downloads menu item again and select FSX. This will open a page containing Software, Scenery and Miscellaneous downloads for FSX only. Similarly for X-Plane and P3D, the menu options take you to pages of links for P3D and X-Plane only.


This page contains links to all the software which you need to fly with the Club. Some are alternatives, some are not essential, but are either preferable to have installed, or simply useful to make life easier while flying with us. Please read the descriptions to help you decide which software you need and which is preferable or useful.


For VFR flight, it is important to know exactly where you are by looking out of the window and correlating what you see with what is on your map. To do this successfully, you need obvious features which you can instantly find on the map - a lake, a railway station etc. The addon scenery created especially for the Club is used in some of our events.

Other addon scenery is valuable simply to increase the realism of your flights. If there is a factory half way between airports, whose very tall and obvious chimney is always even more obviously smoking - it would be good to see this in Flight Simulator.


For useful or interesting files which don't really belong anywhere else!
