The CX-3 Flight Computer provides a fast, accurate flight computing solution and takes confusion out of the equation for ground school study, preflight planning, and enroute navigation. Fast, versatile and easy to use, the CX-3 delivers accurate results quickly and efficiently through an intuitive menu structure designed to follow typical flight planning sequences with a minimum of keystrokes. It can be used on all FAA and Canadian pilot, mechanic, and dispatcher knowledge exams.
A multitude of aviation functions can be performed on the CX-3 flight computer including those related to time, speed, distance, heading, wind, fuel, altitude, cloud base, standard atmosphere, glide, climb & descent, weight & balance, as well as a holding pattern function to help determine entry method and holding details. A calculator, clock, timer and stopwatch are also built in along with multiple settings for lighting, backlighting, themes, scrolling speed, time zones and more.
The sleek design, and ergonomic fit and finish of the CX-3 make for easy transport. The removable cover provides protection for the computer when it's not in use and serves as a base for the unit when attached to the back. A no-slip-strip prevents the CX-3 from sliding around on smooth desk surfaces. A Theme feature provides a convenient way to switch from Standard view to Night or Daylight views. The backlighting feature controls the brightness or intensity of the screen, and the buttons on the keypad will light up in Dusk and Night modes for use in darker environments. A Favorite feature provides quick access to your most frequently used function, and aircraft profile memory to save weight and balance information for your specific aircraft.
Exactly as described
I own a CX-2 and used one of these CX-3s on my ground items for the flight exam - SO intuitive! I bought one for myself so now Im prepped for my written! Def prefer this model!
Very easy to use. If you get the ASA Android or iPhone app for the FAA Knowledge test and practice with that it will tell you how to solve the questions on the CX-3 which is nice. The buttons are large and the display clear and easy to read so this thing is actually usable in the cockpit! The competitors device is hard to read and impossible to use in flight in turbulence. The competitors device also has little icons it displays on its monochrome screen to signal which function you are performing. This has color and a backlit screen and there is no mistaking what you are doing with it. It is a must have for the FAA Knowledge test!
Excellent product. I bought this to replace a Sportys electronic E6 B. This costs about $20 more but is worth every penny. It is much faster than the old circular unit. I highly recommend this product. The shipping was also very fast.
Simple to use. Intuitive menu. Does every aviation calculation I can think of. Reasonable price. What else can you ask for?
Excelent kit. Pitty not allowed for our CAA exams. Well thought out and easy to use.
Brilliant intuitive pilot tool comes with protective case and a quick start cheat card. Has a large backlit readable screen white letters and numbers on black background easy to see. Surprisingly unit conversions also include Mb for baro setting speed in kts weight in Kg to suit Australian aviation units used. I got the best price at Aircraft Spruce even after import taxes and freight cost. Its imperative to download CX3 Flight Computer instructions to be able to become conversant and to use its full potential.
This device is intuitive to the point I did not need to read the instructions. It is very easy to use.
Best flight computer to use for calculations. Simple, easy and comes in handy.
Overall quite good. If I lost it I would buy another. There are a couple of areas I feel it could be improved. The back cover which must be removed to change the batteries is quite the struggle to remove. I was afraid I was going to break it when removing it. I donâ€™t think the batteries last too long so this could be an issue. It also would be nice to have some way short of removing the batteries to completely clear the calculator. Even turning it off then back on it retains in memory the last work done. This means when working on a fresh problem there is the danger of accidentally leaving in and using data from the previous problem you were working on.
