When I was training for my first pilot's license the electronic E6B saved me time flight planning. But most importantly, it made my calculations on the written test faster and easier. I wouldn't want to take an exam without one.

Easy to use, good product.

Recommended

No surprises, performs as advertised. Easier to use than two others from different manufacturers I have owned. Warranty is best available, so Sporty's do back their product unlike some other suppliers. Recent purchase, so reliability will take time, but I like it so am positive about this device. I also have Sporty's E6B app on my iPad Air2 which goes well with Foreflight, which shows E6B alarms such a the E6B timer function.

Needs backlight

Recommended

Hard to read in low light and view angle is poor. Product should be upgraded ASAP

SPORTY'S CUSTOMER SERVICE RESPONSE:
Thank you for the review. Please note that the backlight is great for enhancing contrast in low light conditions. To turn on the backlight, press the conversion button and then press the up arrow.

Sporty's Electronic E6B Flight Computer

Recommended

I bought this to replace my former Sporty's version that died. I used the older version while I went through aircraft dispatcher school. It was great and the new version seems to be identical. My complaint with the new version is that the screen gets weak when looked at directly. I had to hold it at a 45 degree angle to get the best resolution. Sporty's representative says that is the way it is designed, but offered to exchange it for an ASA CS2, which I opted to do. I consider the Sporty's computer to be simpler to operate than the ASA and would prefer it if it wasn't for the screen problem.

Great Producy

Recommended

I've been using a standard E6B for years and just bought this and now I'm kicking myself for not using it before. Still a bit of a challenge to navigate but that's how it goes in aviation.

Works Great For Everything in The Air

Recommended

This calculator/E6B instrument is perfect for any needs you may have; from all ramifications of flight to computing your needs on the ground. The display even has a light up screen. It also displays time in Zulu and local. Excellent investment.

Great Idea, Poor Execution

Not Recommended

The first thing I noticed is the cover--it is slightly too large, so it does not stay attached to the calculator. Also, when I sat down at the Knowledge Exam, one of the rubber "feet" detached (I stuck it back on).

However, the functions work as advertised, and the backlight (with on/off switch) is great. I passed the exam, and I could use it for pre-flight planning, but I'm not certain I would want to use this E6B while en route.

Hello, can this be used on the Canadian PPL and CPL exams?

Is this LED or monochrome?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2016
Hi, just wondering what WCA stands for on the display. I couldn't find it in the instruction manual. What does it stand for, or where can I find it? Thanks for your help.
dylanweav3 on Jul 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: WCA stands for wind correction angle. It will be a positive or negative number, add or subtract this number from the magnetic course to get your magnetic heading. After that, add or subtract the magnetic deviation to get the course heading that you should steer on your compass.
Can you use this one for FAA exams?
Loren A on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I believe you can as this is an electronic version of the E6B computer (whiz wheel). I have'tn actually tried to do so myself, so I will add that caveat.
