Aviators can calculate true airspeed, ground speed, Mach number, altitudes, fuel, headings and courses, time/speed/distance, winds, and weight and balance. Includes 4 AAA batteries.
ASA’s CX-2 Pathfinder Flight Computer takes advantage of advances in display and microcomputer technologies for better performance and price. A menu of 34 functions gives users access to 40 aviation calculations, including weight and balance, with these features:
May be used for FAA and Canadian Exams
The CX-2 complies with Order 8080.6- Conduct of Airman Knowledge Tests. Users may bring the CX-2 with them to the testing centers for all pilot, mechanic, dispatcher, and FAA exams.
Numerous Aviation Functions
Aviators can calculate true airspeed, ground speed, mach number, altitudes, fuel, headings and courses, time/speed/distance, winds, headwind/crosswind components, gliding information, and weight and balance. Users can change variables and recompute without re-entering the whole problem.
The large, easy-to-read LCD screen displays prompts for fast and easy operation. Inputs and outputs are labeled and numbers are displayed with units. The menu organization reflects how a flight is normally planned and executed. This results in a natural flow from one function to the next with a minimum of keystrokes.
The CX-2 features a simple keyboard and slim design. The hard-plastic carrying case protects the computer inside the flight bag, and fits on the back of the unit for storage while the computer is in use.
The CX-2 has 16 unit conversions, including reciprocal conversions for nautical and statute miles, nautical miles and kilometers, feet and meters, pounds and kilograms, gallons and liters, time in H:M:S and decimal formats, Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures, and millibars and inches of mercury.
Timers and Clocks
The CX-2 has two timers: a stopwatch that counts up, and a count down timer. The internal clock displays both local and UTC time and will keep time with the calculator turned off.
Functions can be used together in “chain” calculations, where the answer to a preceding problem is automatically entered into subsequent problems. Standard mathematical calculations and conversions can be performed within each aviation function. The CX-2 uses four AAA batteries (included), and features a 5-year warranty.
Constructed of sturdy clear plastic with easy-to-read numbers and scales. WAC, Sectional, and TAC scales approved by Weight and Measures Department.
Quick scale reference is provided for both statute and nautical miles.
Foggles are glasses that are used as a tool during the pilot training process. The glasses are designed to limit the pilot's field of vision. This assists the learning process by encouraging the pilot to fly with only the help of the flight instruments. In instances when flying at night or in inclement weather, the pilot needs to be able to land with no visual aids external to the craft. Foggles are pilot training glasses that meet all Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) certification requirements.
The polycarbonate lenses are frosted to partially block the wearers field of vision. The open area is just large enough to allow the pilot in training to have a full view of the instrument panel. Foggles are light, comfortable, and easy to wear because they are designed like regular glasses. *Yellow color*
