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.

Performs most calculations
While this calculator performs most calculations needed, I found that two advertised features do not work. Time calculations are in the manual, but it simply does that work. You can try the step by step process, but it simply doesn't work. Not a deal breaker, but it was advertised and even has an example to try. You cannot calculate airplane moment; you get an error when you try. Moment is calculated within weight and balance, so the feature where it keeps your input history and continues to recalculate CG doesn't work because you can't input the plane itself. All other features work so far that I found. I'm still happy with it because it beats using the manual E6B.

Pros: Large display. Display light itself is great. Memory function is good. Cons: Timer is bad. Check out the timer for the apple iPhone default timer. It is ideal for flying. Buttons don't lite at night. Hard to see buttons at night.

Pros: Can be used on the FAA exam. Cons: Visual display is hard to read when held at different angles. This E6B is a great device for the FAA exam, but due to the inconsistent clarity of the display I wouldn't recommend it for flying. When flying I would suggest using the E6B app for your smartphone because the display is more legible.

Good Product - Poor Manual
Good E6B and comes with a small quick reference card, but the instruction manual offers no more insight than the quick reference card. As a student I was really hoping that the instruction manual would at least have the actual words instead of the same abbreviations on the keys.

Pros: Gets the job done with all the calculations you should need to ace a test or figure out a simpler calculation fast in flight. Shipping and customer service at Sporty's was great! Cons: Pricey! Not very easy to use for some of the complex calculations such as weight and balance. I would have expected a much sturdier built device for the price. Reminds me of a cheap $5 calculator that you would buy at Walmart or the Dollar Store. Don't buy this unless you want to use it for the written test which is exactly what I did. Instead, if you don't have to worry about a test just buy the E6B app designed for the iPhone, it is by far easier and nice to use!! Lastly, take care to 'baby' this device I don't see it holding up to being thrown around in a flight bag too long especially without a case or padding in your bag or compartment.

Pros: Saves a lot of time and does allmost that is needed for the ATP knowledge test. Cons: Bulky and not too briliant human engeenering. All in all a little expensive for one hour work at FAA test.

Quality Control Issues
Purchased Sporty's E6B for FAA exam; from a calculation perspective it served me well. However, on the very first day I received it the lens over the calculation results was scratched by the cover; a week later one of the rubber feet fell off. I contacted Sporty's Customer Service and they recommended that I glue the foot myself (not an acceptable response for a brand new product) and had no response for the scratched lens. These issues are minor and the product is still usable but do not bode well for a long life for this product. Buyer Beware.

Pros: seems to be a nice size and buttons seem large enough to use even with light gloves worn. Cons: the conversion labels are hard to see in reduced light and the quick reference card and the manual is in small print. would have been nice to see the manual at least twice the size or a pdf download for letter size paper. ive just learned to use a manual E6B and the Sporty's electronic E6B dosent seem to have all the functions as the manual E6B. however, im just learning so im sure there are more tricks i dont know yet

Does this calculator do Cosine? The ATP has questions on Cosine PLUS everything else here.
A shopper on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't have it anymore but it is a flight calculator not a scientific calculator. I may be wrong but I don't remember it having those types of functions.
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.
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.
If I buy this you should give me the phone app for free. Right?
