Flight Simulation in Light Aircraft

Welcome to CIX VFR CLUB!

The CIX VFR Club is a group of Flight Simulation enthusiasts who enjoy flying extremely realistic simulated light aircraft, chiefly around the United Kingdom, across a computer generated landscape made up of real photographs, and within an Internet community environment. We have around 700 registered members in 63 countries, which reflects the world-wide appeal of aviation simulation.

Latest News

The Club currently is running informal group flights on every night of the week except Thursdays and Sundays at present. These are mostly tours of interesting places with spectacular scenery, with the occasional tricky landing thrown in. Whilst flying, members enjoy informal chat and banter on our Teamspeak channel, which makes these events very sociable. New members are always very welcome on these tours, and beginners are given all the help they need to get going. The current tours are listed on the simple calendar on the right.



Forney Aircoupe G-ARHC

Latest Event

Friday June 7th is a special day for the Club's oldest member, who celebrates his 99th birthay on that day. We are planning a Club celebration on June 7th featuring Woodvale Airport, where he learned to fly in 1961 in Forney Aircoupe G-ARHC, which is still flying. We will also land on Southport Beach, which was the original home of his first Flying Club, Southport Aero Club; and Blackpool and Liverpool, airports which he visited regularly.

Coming Up

The Club has visited Oshkosh several times over the years, once indeed departing from the UK, and flying "across the pond" via Iceland and Greenland in our small aircraft. Once again, members are invited to take part in the exciting flight into Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH), in the the state of Wisconsin, USA, replicationg and mimicking the real world OSHKOSH event which takes place this year from 22nd to 28th July.  We will be flying into Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH) on Tuesday 23rd July.

Training

We offer two flight training courses: - a basic "get you flying" course and a comprehensive General Flying Course, which is modelled closely on the real world Private Pilots Licence course. Informal training on specific topics is also available by arrangement with the Chief Flying Instructor.
We also run Radio Telephony courses, again modelled on real world practice.
