really nice.

  • By Johnny from Oceanside CA USA on Monday, April 02, 2018
  • Pros:
  • Review: Well made and durable. Should last a lifetime if you don't run over it with the airplane. Even then, you could probably get away with it once.

Beats the Flight Calculator

  • By Leland from Montclair NJ USA on Tuesday, October 10, 2017
  • Pros: Clear path to solving problems
  • Review: Helps you know your inputs/avoid input error, and demonstrates the logic behind the formulas. Great tool, way better than cardboard!

What can I say, it's well made, and useable.

  • By Ron from Scroggins TX USA on Tuesday, September 05, 2017
  • Pros: Moving parts do in fact move.
  • Review: It's an E6B. Usually they work or don't. This one seems to work fine.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this product.

  • By Carole from Port Charlotte FL USA on Saturday, November 26, 2016
  • Pros:
  • Review: I purchased my first E6-B when a student pilot 40 years ago (but have since lost it), so I was expecting this latest version to be more cheaply made than the old one. Surprise! This new one is of the same high quality.

A link to the past

  • By Christopher from San Diego CA USA on Wednesday, September 02, 2015
  • Pros: Fits well in my flight bag, no need for batteries, dependable.
  • Review: I really enjoy using this E6B. The numbers and marks are clearly visible, and the accuracy is amazing. The instruction book is very well thought out, and includes numerous problems to solve that help you become accurate with the equations. Pretty cool to also be holding a device that has aided aviators for so many decades. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this model.

This Backs-up the GPS

  • By Gerry from Meadowlakes TX USA on Tuesday, August 26, 2014
  • Pros: It is what it is!
  • 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.
