Based on Sporty’s popular handheld E6B Electronic Flight Computer, the E6B app has been designed from the ground up to make the most of iOS on the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, and MacOS on Apple Computers. The software is based on the tried and true formulas and algorithms developed over the years by Sporty’s team of over 50 pilots. Its pilot-friendly design makes quick work of any navigational, conversion or fuel problem and it also performs conventional arithmetic calculations. The advanced timer/clock feature simultaneously tracks Zulu, Local and Home time zones. The timer counts either up or down, and will display an alert when reaching zero. 27 AVIATION FUNCTIONS -Pressure & Density Altitude -Planned True Airspeed -Heading and Groundspeed -Compass Heading -Leg Time -Fuel Required -Crosswind, Headwind and Tailwind -Cloud Base and Freezing Level -Actual True Airspeed -Actual True Altitude -Wind Speed and Direction -Groundspeed -Planned Mach Number -Required True Airspeed -Required Calibrated Airspeed -Distance Flown -Endurance -Fuel per Hour -Actual Mach Number -Percent Mean Aerodynamic Chord (MAC) -Hydroplane Speed -Required Rate of Climb -Specific Range -Pivotal Altitude -Top of Descent -Required Rate of Descent -Glide Distance 22 AVIATION CONVERSIONS -Celsius :: Fahrenheit -Nautical Miles :: Statute Miles -Nautical Miles :: Kilometers -Feet :: Meters -Pounds :: Kilograms -Avgas Gallons :: Pounds -Jet A Gallons :: Pounds -Gallons :: Liters -Hours/Minutes/Seconds :: Hours -Climb FT/NM :: Climb Percent -Climb FT/NM :: Climb Degrees CALCULATOR -Perform basic math without having to exit the application CLOCK/TIMER -Simultaneous tracking of Zulu, Home and Local time zones -Advanced timer counts up or down and operates independently so you can perform other calculations while the timer is running -Upon reaching zero in the countdown mode, a message will display no matter what app is active – a useful feature for missed approaches, switching fuel tanks, etc.
App has been awesome until 3 months ago when the keyboard stopped working on my iPad six mini
Just because you made this a universal app that with one purchase I can use it on all of my devices, iPhone, iPad and Mac!! Thank you so so so much! ... and the app is also great! High five to your iOS/macOS engineers!
The title says it all! It has made my life just that much easier! Using ForeFlight and finding wind directions has changed my life!
Best app for preflight, and inflight calculations/conversions!
Don’t use the app very much, but when I do it’s invaluable. Quick and easy and always at you fingertips.
App will not allow me to enter anything from keyboard even after following steps to fix issue.
This app makes it a lot easier to just fly with your iPad and iPhone. Would you please consider adding the capability to calculate time like on your electronic E6B?
You always have it with you except during a written exam.
Sporty’s makes it easy for pilots!
Great functionality, but can’t type anything on iPad. Works fine on iPhone, but I need this in the cockpit too. I’m aware of the floating keyboard issue, and have followed all recommended fixes. It seems like the app just can’t detect the keyboard configuration, even when it is fixed in the other apps. May have to switch to another app if there isn’t a good fix for this. Will amend review when/if fixed.
