Description

E6B flight computer with over 100 aviation functions, conversions, and utilities, including functions that you won't find in any other E6B flight computer.

Over 100 aviation functions, conversions, and utilities, including functions that you won't find in any other E6B.

Each function uses the correct scientific formula to ensure accuracy. Other E6B apps rely on rules of thumb that can be up to 10% off. The most comprehensive, accurate, and easiest to use E6B on the App Store.

What is an E6B?

An E6B flight computer is traditionally an analog device resembling a combination slide rule and slide wheel that performs calculations specific to aviation. For example, an E6B can be used to calculate heading and groundspeed after taking into account forecast winds. An E6B is also used to calculate data used for performance planning such as density altitude. Our version goes beyond the analog E6B and even beyond all other E6B apps by including functionality to calculate time, rate and radius of turns, pivotal altitude (great for flight training use), and more.

Needs just one thing

I love the app already, I would just appreciate it so much if displayed times could also include seconds, at least as an optional setting.

Recently during training my CFI simulated loss of ILS, VOR and DME during an approach on a simulator session. I know normally you just notify tower and request visual but for the purpose of learning something new he had me continue the approach using an NDB station as reference for how many miles out I was and with calculate the time until I was exactly over the point where you initiate descent. (The NDB is aligned with the runway and yes we still use NDB in my country sadly).

Anyway, seconds are critical when dealing with such short distances and my CFI is not the kind of guy to just accept “1 min” over “1 min 30 seconds”.

Hi ZombieCOD, we’ve added HH:MM:SS as an option to HH:MM and decimal time in all functions. Just tap the units label next to the time field to switch. Please let us know if we missed anything, and thank you for using our app.

Several tools in this app will get used daily

I think this app has everything I need. Tools for figuring top of decent with wind could use tweaking because I would like to be able to put any known variable in and have it give me the unknown (it's possible I needed to dig deeper for one of the other tools). The time calculator will make catching up on my logbook a breeze! For 99c this is a must have from GA to Airline, there are things in this package for all pilots.

Calculation problem?

Update: Reply received from the developer. Great to hear from them and no idea why I didn’t receive the original reply they say they sent. This review and reply process is poorly designed (by Apple) … but that’s a separate issue.

Updated to 4 stars because it’s a well designed app that is very easy to use and the reply is appreciated. Kudos for that.

The issue with no guidelines or instructions provided remains. The vast majority of the functionality in the app is perfectly straight forward. If you can use a real life manual e6b this will be a no brainer. This is faster and usually easier. It’s a pretty good app. But the lack of any user manual makes a couple key calculations either very difficult to verify or too easy to use incorrectly (and receive the wrong output as a result).

For the record, I understand the calculations well enough to do them manually with paper and pencil. A user quick guide would likely solve any remaining confusion. Or at least allow verification of accuracy.

Hi Jonathan,

We received your email at 10:13 AM on November 6, and replied at 4:17 PM that same day.

The true altitude function is in fact accurate. As stated in the app description, we use the correct scientific formulas for all functions. Other E6Bs often rely on rules of thumb and tables that provide reasonable approximations.
