New for Summer 2022 - includes 9 new functions and conversions
Based on Sporty’s popular handheld E6B Electronic Flight Computer, the E6B app has been designed from the ground up to make the most of iOS on the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, and MacOS on Apple Computers. The software is based on the tried and true formulas and algorithms developed over the years by Sporty’s team of over 50 pilots.
Its pilot-friendly design makes quick work of any navigational, conversion or fuel problem and it also performs conventional arithmetic calculations.
The advanced timer/clock feature simultaneously tracks Zulu, Local and Home time zones. The timer counts either up or down, and will display an alert when reaching zero.

Ratings and Reviews
Easy and reliable
All the features you need and a modern, clean interface. I like the ability to favorite calculations so you can quickly do the 3 or 4 you always do.
Needs more watch features
Over all a great app on phone and iPad. Needs more watch features. Timer for example would be really nice. Having my favorites from my phone on my watch would be really nice as well. Even having different favorites on watch would be nice. Really hard to scroll Thru all of them and find what you want.
Unable to type on iPad
Great functionality, but can’t type anything on iPad. Works fine on iPhone, but I need this in the cockpit too. I’m aware of the floating keyboard issue, and have followed all recommended fixes. It seems like the app just can’t detect the keyboard configuration, even when it is fixed in the other apps. May have to switch to another app if there isn’t a good fix for this. Will amend review when/if fixed.
