The Club's 15th Birthday Flyin
February 18th 2019

The Club is celebrating 15 years of operation this February. As a change from our 2-4-CIX displays which we have held for some years we are going back 15 years to the days when our events were "Flyins". Members flew from an airfield of their choice to a single destination. We then sat on the Apron looking at each other (thanks to the new "multiplayer" phenomenon in FS2004) and chatting socially on Teamspeak (which continues to be a major feature of Club life today). So - fly in to Wellesbourne Mountford (EGBW) on the evening of Monday 18th February, and meet your friends.

Previous Star Event

A Trip to the Tower
January 22nd 2019

Members of CIX VFR Club were invited to have a look round the airfield, including the tower, at Manchester International Airport. After the guided tour, Garibaldi biscuits & Yorkshire tea, we filed our flight plan for the trip home and departed the way we came.

Farm Strips

The original 93 UK Farms Strips developed by Gerry Winskill, and the 10 developed by Pete Chapman, have been re-organised. The Farm Strips page gives the complete itinerary in groups, starting from Gloucestershire, and finishing eventually at Biggin Hill. A more formal start was made in January 2015. Usually two groups were assigned each month. Monthly assignments were shown on the Locations page, and details were discussed in the forum. Whilst that cycle has been completed, it is still possible to make your way round the planned route.

Informal Events

Club activities are discussed in the forum, which is open to club members only. These include a number of informal club events each of which is organised by an individual member or a small group of members. Some are short lived, but others turn into long running group activities. The more structured or recently active informal events are listed here with links to relevant forum topics for club members.

Beginners Night - A regular Monday evening surgery. Run by Mel Kirk to help beginners.

Don Johnson and Friends - Regular Tuesday evening group flights around Gloucestershire airfield.

Guided Tour - A trip around Europe, or foreign fields with flights on Wednesday evenings.

Friday Group Flight (FriesenFlieger + cix) - A Friday evening meeting with our German Friends.
