over 50 years and still working

  • By Janis L Keown-Blackburn on Wednesday, April 28, 2021
  • Pros: no need to plug in or worry about a battery running down
  • Review: I purchased this E6B as a Christmas gift for a student of mine. Over 50 years ago when I was a student I purchased an aluminum E6B. I still use it, it still works great and I wanted my student to have a tradition one that she will be able to use throughout her career.

So far, so good. I'm just getting back into flying and I have to relearn a lot of stuff

  • By chuck from Northborough MA USA on Wednesday, January 20, 2021
  • Pros:
  • Review: Check back with me in 3 months and I'll tell you what I think of the product

  • Verified Purchase

Had mine since 1974

  • By heb from Warner Robins, GA on Friday, November 06, 2020
  • Pros: Totally nonelectric; no batteries or solar cells required--ever.
  • Review: Issued to me at USAF Navigator School at Mather AFB, CA.; used it for over 10 years. Fast and accurate. I don't know what they use today, but it's hard to believe one could make these calculations any quicker using an electronic calculator.

    We had special decals of sorts which we applied to the wind side. These allowed for quick calculations of motions when doing celestial navigation.

Correction to my previous Review--"Had mine since 1974"

  • By heb from Warner Robins, GA on Friday, November 06, 2020
  • Pros: Same as before
  • Review: "Mine" was an MB-4A flight computer, NOT the E6B. The -4A allowed for more calculations.

Great E6-B

  • By A Customer from Ohio on Friday, October 11, 2019
  • Pros: Durable
  • Review: This was a gift after my first solo. It was a bit stiff, and so I "loosened it up" by carefully prying at the edges. Works very well.

  • Verified Purchase

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!
