Pilots Flight Computer
FlyBy E6B is an essential application for all pilots. Designed by a professional airline pilot it includes many features not found in the "other" E6B programs.
If you are considering a career in aviation FlyBy E6B has functions that you can use in every aircraft you will fly.
FlyBy E6B was one of the very first applications of its kind published for the Palm Pilot. Used by thousands of pilots the world over, it has evolved from the suggestions and feedback we have received.

Ratings and Reviews
Very nice and comprehensive, the ease of use is very nice and intuitive. Wish I would have had something like this when I was a student. As an airline Captain, there are many useful items that are now indispensable, specially the conversions from metric to standard systems. I'm sure the are items that can be improved but as it stands, it's a very nice app for the money.
I am an experimental test pilot with Bombardier Learjet. I use Lonnie’s app frequently for test mission planning and execution. It is reliable and thorough. Highly recommended.
I got my general pilots license in the 90s thanks to FlyBy E6B... as a student, what a nightmare it was to do calculations with the old aluminum E6B computer; capable but primitive. I used to think, "Nasa put men on the moon using slide rules, so I can solve these problems " Then as a miracle I discovered FLyBy's E6B for my palm pilot and how easy and fun it was to do calculations and -as a multinational guy that I am- for everyday use converting temperature and distances. I liked it so much that I got the desktop version and used it all the time. As technology progresses, I was very happy to find that FlyBy E6B was available as an App for the iphone. Their customer service is fantastic, Lonnie always responds emails promptly trough out the years. (Unlike Jeppesen, where I bought two aviation calculators, and both after the battery died couldn't be brought up to life again with a fresh battery, and Jeppesen didnt stand behind their product saying that there was a problem with the calculators and they didnt support them any longer.)
I recommend highly FlyBy E6B and it will always have good memories and a soft spot in my heart...
