Compact and Accurate

  • By A Customer from Long Beach, CA on Monday, May 07, 2007
  • Pros: Compact, Precise
  • Cons: None
  • Review: An E6-B is required for true dead reckoning. This compact E6-B should be required for convenience. Small and accurate, you can't help but be happy that it's in your flight bag.

A great product from a past age, still easy to use and relevant today

  • By hermann from Fairview NC USA on Friday, February 20, 2009
  • Pros: Packed with vital info, fits shirt-pocket, inexpensive, very quick to use, no false precision
  • Cons: takes a little time to learn, forces you to estimate answers to stay honest, unfamiliar to Gen-X kids
  • Review: I am a first-time student learning to fly a taildragger that is almost as old as I am (1946 Aeronca Champ). This instrument, the old E6-B flight computer, fits the bill--an amazing achievement, it must be the pinnacle of slide-rule development. It packs an huge amount of information that fits in my shirt pocket, can be used while I fly by the "seat-of-pants" and is as efficient as ever. It took me about an hour to learn, will never run out of batteries, can withstand rain because it is shellacked, and my wife was relieved when she saw it--after I told her I had bought yet another computer!

Good value

  • By A Customer from Cincinnati OH on Tuesday, May 01, 2007
  • Review: Although a paperboard product, appears fairly hardy and I suspect that it will be in service for quite awhile.
