E6B Flight Computer. Time, Speed, & Distance - MzeroA Flight Training

  • Published on Nov 11, 2015
  • m0a.com When is the last time you actually dusted off the ole' manual e6b? In this technology driven world I bet it's been awhile. I strongly believe it's important to have a strong manual e6b skill set to fall back on during your training and beyond

    You are allowed to take your electronic E-6B to your Written as long as it's not on a phone or tablet!

    I'm a slide rule (and mechanical calculating machines) collector from germany (with a bit of fascination of aviation too) and I came to an E6B and asked myself "how does this freaking cool thingy work?" Now I know the basics, thank you for this, I'll calculate some routes now, just for fun. I hope I'll do my license some day, bit expensive here in good ol' germany, so I guess Gyrocopter would be a dream. It's a bit cheaper and I love Autogyros.

    for times when the gadgets/toys lovers run out of power. ...in the past I lost power on all my gadgets while boating in the dark and ended up on a sandbar. Good thing that the boats can take a break when the navigator looses the bearings. While driving in the big city, I often get lost when my GPS runs out of power, maybe I need to learn to use the paper maps

    The best thing about E6B is that it never runs out of battery, it doesn't hang and it never loses GPS signal.

    I start my first lesson on this tomorrow at 7AM...and I'm already terrified of this thing. I can't imagine using this thing while flying, squinting to see the numbers as is. I mean jeez you may as well be flying IMC while you're staring down at your lap trying to use this thing.... ugh.

    The E6B is a out dated clunky item. If flying solo I rather use my electronic E6B to find my calculations rather then squinting at the small numbers on the manual wasting time that could be used for aircraft avoidance. I get it. For a Private Pilot its good to learn, but after that its virtually useless.

  • Matthew Santonastaso

    I passed all my checkrides without knowing how to use the e6b. the FAA does not require you to know how to use it and you are allowed to take a electronic computer in the test. its obsolete.

    • Jim Stanley
      Jim Stanley Year ago

      Must be an approved, i.e. aviation, electronic computer. You still have to know how to do all this, you just get to push buttons instead. I haven't used an electronic E6b, but I like having all the extra stuff like wind component and xwind correction charts right there. E6B is just more intuitive to me.
