The best-selling E6B app for iPad and iPhone is now even better!
The latest version of Sporty’s best-selling Electronic E6B available is for Apple's iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. This powerful app includes all the features of the traditional E6B, including 22 aviation functions, 20 conversions, and complete timer features. This new version of the app takes all the core functions of the original E6B app and adds improved functionality, a redesigned interface and an all new weight & balance calculator.

The app’s user-friendly design makes calculations fast and easy. Each function can be selected from a plain English list, and the app prompts the user for information as it goes. Plus, entries are saved from previous calculations, so there’s no need to re-enter data. Calculating weight and balance is especially easy, with a dedicated page for adding new passengers, fuel or baggage.

Sporty’s E6B app makes quick work of navigational, weight and balance, or fuel problems, and is a favorite of student pilots. But it also includes a number of features that are useful for experienced pilots, like Top of Descent, Specific Range and Planned Mach #.

The timer can be set to count up or count down, so it is perfect for timing approaches, holds or switching fuel tanks. There is also a clock function that shows Home, Local and Zulu time.
