CAX Interactive Training Center

Here you will find all of the necessary information to complete the Basic and Advanced Training Courses. We know that you want to fly instead of going through links to the learning material and tutorials. In real life you would have to go to a Ground School first before you had a chance to fly. Since we are flying using the X-Plane flight simulator, we can "cheat" a little bit and modify the learning process so it is more pleasurable. Simply - you will learn while flying.

Basic Training

The program has a series of interactive lessons, resulting in graduation from the basic training program with a pin awarded on the pilot's record.

There are five (5) lessons in the Basic Training Course (BTC). Each lesson is designed in a way that the material learned becomes a base for following lessons. Therefore, the lessons must be taken in order.

We will cover everything from basic straight and level flight, trimming the plane, using autopilot to complete planned VFR flight and Use all previously gained skills. We hope the learning process will give you a lot of satisfaction and knowledge to be able to start taking more advanced CAX check rides.

The learning material is below. Make sure you study the reading material before beginning the lesson.

All airports have scenery, which is contained in the Training Scenery Package in the Add-Ons section of the hangar.

If you have any questions before you begin, contact the Basic Training Administrator or post a request in the forums.

Advanced Training

As with Basic Training, the advanced program has a series of interactive lessons, resulting in graduation from the Advanced Training Program with a pin awareded on the pilot's record. You will need to have graduated from Basic Training, possess a rank of General Aviation Instrument Pilot or higher, and need to register first. Although you may still fly the lessons if you don't register, you will not be eligible to obtain a completion pin.

There are eight (8) lessons in the Advanced Training Course. Each lesson is designed in a way that the material learned becomes a base for the next one. Therefore they need to be taken in order.

You will learn and fly various types of SIDs and STARs, and a full approach. You will learn emergency procedures and also take a VFR flight up and down the Hudson River. Finally you'll fly in UK airspace with a flight from Glasgow to Heathrow. The learning material is below. Make sure you study the reading material before beginning the lesson.
