be used for FAA Exams. The CX-2 complies with Advisory Circular
(AC) 60-11, Test Aids and Materials that May be Used by Airman
Knowledge Testing Applicants. Users may bring the CX-2 with
them to the testing centers for all pilot, mechanic, dispatcher,
and FAA exams.
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
Design. 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 an hours:minutes:seconds format and time in decimal format,
Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures, and millibars and inches
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. 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.
CX-2 uses four AAA batteries (included), and features a 5-year
