Bring Your Own Plane (BYO)

Background

Currently Pilots may fly a Payware or Freeware version of our Cal Air Aircraft outlined in each of the Pilot Rankings, because of requests from Cal Air pilots, the list of available aircraft to be flown for California Airlines has been expanded to include their favorite payware and freeware aircraft.

The official Cal Air fleet of aircraft have been modified and tested to be high quality, well documented X-Plane aircraft, that our pilots have enjoyed flying. But now, with the implementation of the BYO program, our pilots will be able to fly other X-Plane aircraft that are available outside of the California Airlines stable of aircraft.

California Airlines Administration reserves the right to change, modify, ammend, or discontinue all of the BYO Guidelines and Procedures without prior notification.
