This Backs-up the GPS
by Gerry from Meadowlakes TX USA 

Pros: It is what it is!
Cons: It is also ballbark, won't give you seconds.
Review: If you can do this on a note pad and in your head, you're my kind of aviator. I bought this to keep in touch. As an enlisted flight crew member on the B-52, I used to plot positions along the route, at mach .8.+ it was fun to keep up with the avionics.

by Miguel from Campo Largo Paran Brazil

by Thomas from Cheyenne WY USA 
Pros: metal, sturdy
Cons: TAS range is limited for computing wind correction due to the computer's compact size but it works for most GA applications.
Review: I was a KC-135 navigator for 21 years (1979-2000) and used my E6-B daily. I bought this one to replace the one I used in the USAF. This one is high quality and very useful. Don't bother with the cheap plastic models that melt and warp in the heat. This is great for general aviation (GA) use. I'm a CFI and would buy this product again.

My new computer does not work
by James from Severna Park, MD 

Review: This computer came with the kneeboard. Since day one its rotation has been catchy, and now it will not rotate through about 200 degrees. Very frustrating when one is doing calculations to prepairs for an FAA test.

Highly Recommend
by Robert from Muldraugh KY USA 

Review: Because of my age primarily, I'm a "Charts n Darts" man. Old military will know what that means. Technology is great but Murphy is still running strong. I want to be able to navigate using charts n darts so whatever goes south, it wont matter to me because I'll still be able to navigate. There is absolutely no comparison to this vs the cardboard version. And I use a thin tipped erasable marker on the wind side. Much easier to see and wipes right off.

Very useful, has served me well in my classes.
by Roberto from Lincolnton NC USA 

Pros: It makes navigation calculations, speed and direction of the wind, etc. are very easy.
Cons: For me, the manual is somewhat complicated at first.
Review: It has served me well, for the calculations of wind direction, flight speed, etc, to satisfy what I wanted, and is great for those who study aviation.

by Duane from Glendale AZ USA 
Pros: very sturdy and has lots of pertinent info on the slider
Cons: hard to mark on the wind side plastic
Review: The only thing that I find annoying is that the plastic sheet on the wind side does not take pencil or dry erase marker very well, making it hard to see the wind correction line.

Good but not great
by Hap Mills from Jensen Beach FL USA 

Pros: Well made
Cons: Al. slide will take a set when bent. Hard to make a fine pencil X on the wind face
Review: First am I qualified to comment: After 1,000 hrs as a B-52 navigator using the AF E6b version, I would say I am. This is a good product that could be great. Two deficiencies: The slide should be plastic. More flexible and cheaper. The wind face needs to be a different surface. it does not take a pencil mark very well. Could it be fixed. Of course 50 yurs ago the USAF issued E6Bs that had both of these improvments;. Hap Mills Ret. USAF 1525B (B-52 Navigator)

Confirming WWII Navigation/Bombing
by THOMAS from DENTON TX USA 

Review: I'm using this product to do research into WWII navigational/bombing techniques and to confirm navigation decisions and judgments made under those conditions. I use it to confirm results and so far, right on the money. It's been particularly useful for computing drifts fed into the Norden bombsight during bomb runs ....

by Rick from New Fairfield CT USA 
Pros: Duriable, easy to rwad/use, handy case
Cons: not a great instruction manual
Review: So far, the Flight Computer has been great. Very duriable and easy to use. The instruction manual could be a little more comprehensive, but since there are many instructional options available for the E-6B its not a big deal.

No batteries, no chargers, E6B
by Randy from Ponte Vedra FL USA 

Pros: Easy to read, easy to use, no batteries. Fits in my briefcase.
Cons: Requires both hands to operate
Review: The ASA E6B flight computer comes in a nice vinyl case with instruction booklet. It never needs batteries and never needs charging. It works no matter what as long as you put in the right information. Its easy to read and easy to use. You just have to remember a few formulas. I've never used all of its functions but I know they are there if I need them and want to learn how to get answers.

by Robert from Birmingham AL USA 

Pros: Construction, readability
Cons: None
Review: The aluminum E6-B flight computer is sturdy, warp resistant, easy to read, and easy to use. For students it comes with a good instruction manual, not lengthy but easy to understand. For the pros this device provides the ability to perform the quick calculations vital to safe flight.

Safety backup when electrons fail
by Ray from New Orleans LA USA 

Pros: Solid, quality construction, clear markings
Cons: None
Review: I had long ago given away my original metal E6B to an aspiring student pilot. With online and electronic handheld flight calculators, I hadn't used an analog E6B in years. Even so, I carried a cardboard E6B in my flight bag just in case the electronic gadgets failed me. I bought the aluminum E6B mainly out of tradition...somehow using a cardboard one just didn't seem like the authentic "real pilot" thing to do. This unit is well-constructed, has a solid quality feel, clear markings, and a decent instruction manual (good thing, too, because I had to re-learn how to use the dang thing!).

by Gyro pilot from Belleville IL USA

by Steve from Stevensville MT USA

Way to go for the last 38 years..
by Scott from Sydney Australia 

Pros: Ease of use if in regular use, same as the Brain I guess
Cons: NONE
Review: I've been using one since 1971. I've NEVER had any dramas with it. Its my second best friend when I am flying. Wouldnt give it up for an electronic one! The batteries cant go flat.... (yeah I know, it doesnt have any ....) Why fix something if its not broken ... Some people are just geting away from the basics of flying, try it out people! IT DOES WORK and always will! Sometimes, the old ways are better and more reliable ways. I know this product is!

It's sturdy, it works.
by Suzanne from Virginia Beach VA USA 

Pros: Durable, can take a beating
Cons: Ohter than the WAC plotter on the outer scale, not much to complain about
Review: Product meets expectations. Definitely more durable than the cardboard/plastic version. One minor hangup is the plotter scales. I don't need statute miles as much as nautical. Best utility would be to have the SECTional plotter on the outer scale as opposed to WAC which I don't thik is used as often. Other than that, everything else works as expected.

Great Product
by Shaun from Vero Beach FL USA 

Review: This product is made of good quality metal, so it is durable. All of the slides and turns work great and I havent had any problems with any jamming. The font is large enough to read very easily. Over all I think it is a great product. I almost bought the cheaper plastic one, but I am glad I decided to spend the extra ten bucks. I feel that I will still have this computer several years from now, and it will still be just as good then.

by Joshua from Greenville SC USA 
Pros: It cannot be bent as easily as the cardboard versions, and the computer portion has a liner on the inside that keeps the it from sliding on the computer, making it very nice for computing compass heading and wind correction angle
Cons: It could do everything I was hoping it could do, so I really can't say anything bad about it
Review: One of the things I liked about this flight computer is the wind side of the computer. Most of it is scaled in increments of one, instead of in two like my old one, making this a lot easier to read than my old one.

There whenI needed it.
by Maurice from Nazareth, PA 

Pros: Reliable, accurate enough.
Cons: more complex, slower.
Review: It was a bright day and I couldn't read my electronic flight computer. The batteries were going, so I grabbed my E6-B. I had to think for a minute, but all I needed was time and fuel burn to an alternate airport. It got me there. A+ for my E6-B. I think I'll practice with it more often.

Works well without batteries
by George from Applegate MI USA 

Pros: Well built, reliable, easy to use.
Cons: Maybe, not as accurate
Review: I bought this to throw in my flight bag in the event my electronic flight computer dies. It looks to me like the results are very close between the two but I have to give an extra point or two for accuracy to the electronic version. All in all, a well built tool and worth the price even if you have an electronic E6B as I do.

E6B
by Ben from Anchorage, Alaska 

Pros: Reliable, multi tool
Cons: Complex
Review: The E6B is probably the best out there. True it has a lot of moveable parts, but if you sit down and spend a few minutes learning its functions, it can be much faster than a computer. Also it has no batteries to die making it completly reliable. A truely good product.

Review: Probably the best E6-B out there, but I don't like it. I'm a software developer, a geek. I just can't adjust to all the weird things you have to do to use this thing when the same manufacturer makes the CX-2 Pathfinder Flight Computer. I guess I'm just not a traditionalist.
