CAX Interactive Training Center    
       
   

Welcome to California Airlines' Interactive Training Center!

Here you'll find all 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 X-Plane flight simulator, we can "cheat" a little bit and modify 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 5 lessons in the Basic 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 01, 02 etc.

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 that learning process will give you a lot of satisfaction and knowledge to be able to start taking more advanced CAX Check Rides.

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

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 awarded 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, but you wont obtain your pin.

There are 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 01, 02 etc.

You will learn and fly various types of SID's 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. Click below to access the lesson material you are interested in and make sure you study the reading material.

Most of the airports have scenery which can be obtained from scenery hangar. Don't forget to download the Statue of Liberty from the Landscapes section.
