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.

Essential for FAA tests, but obsolete compared with smartphone apps
The old manual E6B wheel device is imprecise, hard to use, and an arcane throwback to the early days of aviation. While this handheld computer was, I'm sure, a revelation when it debuted, smartphone apps, including Sporty's own, make it feel as antiquated and cumbersome as it once did to the paper device. Unfortunately you can't bring your iPhone into an FAA test, so you still need this computer for the test. But I'd never use it in flight due to tiny fonts, weak backlight, fussy buttons.

Highly suggest for written test
With the answers the FAA throws at you when taking the multiple choice written test using a manual E6B can be be hard coming up with an answer between for example 359° and 001°. The electronic E6B hits it right on the numbers (or very close) and simply round up / down for the correct answer.
This electronic E6B can be used on the FAA written and highly suggest it!

A little harder to move through the menue
I have my Sporty’s e6b from 30 years ago and it still works. Wanted to get a new one with back lighting. I found this one a little harder to use when moving through the menue.

A Student best friend
I purchased this as soon as I started my PPL. and Boy how it help learn in an easier way. I do use both the traditional E6B and the Sportys electronic E6B to check my calculation and make sure I got things right every time.

Die lay is so dim as to be hard to read. I changed batteries to ensure it wasn’t an old set, and still very dim. Be in a very well lit room if you want to be able to see.

Great tool
Had one years ago when I was actively flying. Had to take a break from flying but now I'm a "rusty pilot" getting back into it. Bought a new one (I left the batteries in the old one and they corroded, ruining the computer). This flight computer is a must for me. Thanks Sporty's!

User Guide is confusing
User Guide doesn't provide enough guidance to gain proficiency. A good video guide on YouTube might be helpful.

Still use it on a test
I prefer the E6B app, however, if you will be taking written tests, this is still allowed during testing. I will use it for my commercial, than CFI written, then I think I'll donate it to the exam location that I have taken all my tests.
