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. 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. 22 AVIATION FUNCTIONS -Pressure & Density Altitude -Planned True Airspeed -Heading and Groundspeed -Leg Time -Fuel Required -Crosswind, Headwind and Tailwind -Cloud Base -Actual True Airspeed -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) -Required Rate of Climb -Specific Range -Top of Descent -Required Rate of Descent 18 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 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. Includes E6B app for Apple Watch
Does what it says on the tin. Nice to have an electronic E6B on the phone, and it's Spirty's so it is good!
All the necessary functions and more!!! My only complaint in the W/B section is that you can’t change the units from lbs to kg. You have to calculate everything in lbs and then convert them to kgs…. An oversight? (Not everyone works in lbs and gallons)
This app should cover everything you need for an E6B, but lowers the amount of time spent on calculations. Good for use on the go, or if you are in a rush.
It’s everything I need
I actually prefer the old version before the update. There were some features on the old version, like the weight and balance, that are no longer available on this version. Those other features were very helpful.
App could be tweaked by adding a magnetic variation input field, for calculating heading and GS. Where I operate from, it’s 16 degrees. I need to manually subtract that for every calculation to get compass heading.
Happy to see W&B
Weights and balances different on my phone vs pad. Cannot do on iPhone. Missing Ability to input informs the iPad . To some extent I like the older version. There was no carry over from the previous version.
It works nicely as a study tool for me. 👍🏼👍🏼
All the features you need and a modern, clean interface. I like the ability to favorite calculations so you can quickly do the 3 or 4 you always do.
