The most versatile and easy-to-use aviation flight computer for fast, accurate flight planning and calculations. Using the latest microchip and display technologies, the features and functions of the ASA CX-3 Flight Computer make it the most useful aviation calculator available. Includes 4 AAA batteries.

The ASA CX-3 Flight Computer makes flight planning simple by taking confusion out of the equation. Fast, versatile and easy to use, the CX-3 delivers accurate results quickly and efficiently. It can be used on all FAA and Canadian pilot, mechanic, and dispatcher knowledge exams. Whether used for flight planning, ground school, or knowledge testing, the menu organization reflects the order in which a flight is normally planned and executed, resulting in a natural flow from one function to the next with a minimum of keystrokes.

Multiple 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 mutliple 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 protective cover comes off the front and snaps onto the back of the computer. 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 store the Aircraft Profile will let you store numbers specific to your aircraft.

The ASA CX-3 Flight Computer Features:

  • May be used for FAA and Canadian Exams
    The CX-3 complies with FAA Order 8080.6 and Advisory Circular (AC) 60-11, "Test Aids and Materials that May be Used by Airman Knowledge Testing Applicants"; therefore, you may bring the CX-3 with you to the testing centers for all pilot, mechanic, dispatcher, and FAA exams.
  • Numerous Aviation Functions
    Calculate everything from true airspeed and Mach number, fuel burn, holding patterns, to headwind/crosswind components, center of gravity (CG), and everything in between. The menu structure provides easy entry, review, and editing within each function. Multiple problems can be solved within one function.
  • User Friendly
    The color LCD screen displays a menu of functions, and the inputs and outputs of a selected function, for easy-to-read menus and data displays. The inputs and outputs of each function are separated on the display screen so it is clear which numbers were entered and which were calculated, along with their corresponding units of measurement. The menu organization reflects how a flight is normally planned and executed. The result is a natural flow from one function to the next with a minimum of keystrokes: to plan a flight, simply work from the menus in sequential order as you fill in your flight plan form.
  • Non-volatile memory
    All settings including aircraft profile, weight and balance data, trip plan data, values entered by the user, and calculations performed by the device will be retained until the batteries are removed or the user performs a memory reset. Follow the CX-3 User Guide for info on backing up and restoring memory.
  • Ergonomic Design
    The CX-3 features a simple keyboard and slim design. The non-slip cover will protect your computer inside the flight bag and it fits on the backside of the unit for easy storage while in use.
  • Unit Conversions
    The CX-3 has 12 unit-conversions: Distance, Speed, Duration, Temperature, Pressure, Volume, Rate, Weight, Rate of Climb/Descent, Angle of Climb/Descent, Torque, and Angle. These 12 conversion categories contain 38 different conversion factors for over 100 functions.
  • Timers and Clocks
    The CX-3 has two timers: a stopwatch that counts up, and a countdown timer. The stopwatch can be used to keep track of elapsed time or to determine the time required to fly a known distance. The countdown timer can be used as a reminder to switch fuel tanks, or to determine the missed approach point on a non-precision instrument approach. An internal clock continues running even when the flight computer is turned off. UTC, destination and local time can be displayed, and the time can be set with UTC, destination or local time.
  • Interactive Functions
    The CX-3 is designed so the functions can be used together. You can perform “chain” calculations where the answer to a preceding problem is automatically entered in subsequent problems. Standard mathematical calculations and conversions can be performed within each aviation function.

Dimensions: 3-1/3" W x 6-1/2" H x 3/4" D

Portable and thoroughly sufficient

  • By A Customer from Parrish FL USA on Monday, February 12, 2024
  • Pros: Handy, portable and easy to use.
  • Review: Although electronic E6Bs are taking the aviation industry by storm, I still find this very reliable and doesn't take up as much room as the iPad.

Passed IFR Written 95%

  • By A Customer from San Diego CA USA on Wednesday, January 24, 2024
  • Pros: Cross wind and groundspeed
  • Review: Didn't realize there are batteries inside that I had to reset before taking test but otherwise used it for all the math stuff!

Best E6-B Replacement

  • By A Customer from Evans GA USA on Wednesday, March 22, 2023
  • Pros: Logical layout. Easy cursor movement
  • Review: Best replacement for the old whiz wheel that I have found. Extremely easy to use. Everything is laid out in a concise and logical format. No scrolling through a crowded collection of terms looking for the function needed

  • Verified Purchase

  • By on Friday, November 11, 2022
  • Pros:
  • Review: As a replacement for my CX-2, this unit certainly gets the job done. I appreciate the choice of two font colors….white or green. It works as expected and i hope this one lasts. The casing seems a good bit thinner than the CX-2, so you just have to handle a little more carefully.

Great Tool for Flight Planning

  • By JKangaroo188 from Riverside, CA on Thursday, October 13, 2022
  • Pros: The speed at which it gives me my numbers
  • Review: The flight computer has been the greatest I used when doing written exams, calculating for the SCAN exam for NIFA, and it came in clutch when doing flight planning for my Aircraft Dispatch Certificate.
    The speed at which it gives me my numbers is phenomenal!

Great tool for learning.

  • By A Customer from Clarence Center NY USA on Thursday, May 26, 2022
  • Pros: When the correct answer is apparent, it is easy to see where you are making calculation mistakes.
  • Review: The CX-3 really helped me better understand what information was required to solve some aviation problems. Since the calculator gave me the correct answer, I was able to concentrate instead on all the information needed to get that answer. Altitudes and Weight and Balance problems are a lot easier to understand now.

    Using this tool helped me understand the solutions rather than just memorizing the answers.
