Vital backup, educational, must-know calculator.
This is my 2nd ASA E6B, first still works ok but was sticking after about 15 years of casual use. The new one is smooth as silk, easy to turn inner wheel, but it stays put when you set it to a value. The blue coloring of the dial definitely helps a bit. My only criticism of the device is I think the outer markings would make it easier to read if the background was black and the divisions clear - I find the contrasting sides sides are easier to line up with the reversed contrasts. Less optically confusing. Also, none of the manuals for the E6B (not just this one by ASA) explain all the functions clearly, on occasions throwing in undefined terms without explanation. A manual a few pages longer would be a plus. My work-around for this was to download a PDF version and annotate the few sections that lack clarity or adequate definitions.. Of course the use of an electronic E6B gets around all this stuff. But the manual version works sufficiently well to be a back up for dead batteries or other electronic malfunctions (various damage). I always have a manual E6B that I know how to use quickly at hand for a backup. Easy to use with occasional reviews to maintain proficiency. VERY well made.

Love it.
Best E6B I’ve ever owned. Red pencil works a bit better for me than a normal number 2 on the wind side.

The simplest is usually the best
It’s funny that, even with what it has, you still have to use the plotter for direct distance measurements. If I would have known that earlier, I would have never bought the digital E6B,s For part 61 I could never find a ground school instructor. I had to teach myself or take one of the big schools. I couldn’t work and go their at the same time. You can’t use it alone, but you do need it. For what it does

Only One Complaint
I only have one complaint, but it is a big one. I cannot find a pen or pencil that can be used to make temporary marks on the wind side of this E6B. I have been using small post-it notes. They work, but it is a hassle.I may get a different E6B as it seems to have a few extra features.

"Old Fashioned" E6B - always reliable
I find the electronic E6B a lot easier to use on the fly than the Sporty's electronic E6B. Strictly personal preference.

It's easy to turn, and easy to slide, and easy to read.
I love the way the calculator part turns so easy. Most are difficult to turn. It's made of aluminum so will last forever.

Are these something that pilots actually use? Or do they use computers, like cell phones or the dash on the plane?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: i prefer the old "wheel" slide rule to electronic. batteries never die and it is better for understanding the "why" of the answer as well as the answer
Does this model have the rotatable windspeed cursor, so that you don't need to mark it with a pencil?
