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

    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.

  • Veni Vidi Amavi

  • Johnathon Sprinzl

    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.

    • 738polarbear

    • Veni Vidi Amavi

      well this always reassure sme to hear because honestly, idk how I'd use the whiz wheel while in flight say an emergency or something....crazy small numbers on mine anways

  • Matthew Santonastaso
    Matthew Santonastaso 2 years ago +2

    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 10 months 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.

  • Shaun Bryant
    Shaun Bryant 2 years ago +3

    I have no experience and just beginning to learn from watching content. One thing I don't understand is how did he get 181=TC. And definitely don't understand how he got 104? Please explain, dummy it up for me.

    • ihatepugs
      ihatepugs 6 months ago +1

      738polarbear stfu. everyone has some things they dont understand in the beginning. if you are a pilot i wish everyone around you who has to deal with your attitude good luck

    • 738polarbear
      738polarbear 9 months ago

      You're too stupid to be a pilot . Be a bus driver.

    • D. N.
      D. N. 2 years ago

      Shaun Bryant 104 is the ground speed. After he did all those steps your ground speed is where the open hole which is located in the center of the e-6b

    • D. N.
      D. N. 2 years ago +1

      Shaun Bryant you get your plotter and put in on the map to those two airports he shows. Make sure the plotter wheel is straight which means the 0 will always be straight up and parallel to the longitude. Then you basically just see the angle which is around 181°

    At minute 1:18 you say, "And I'll do a little bit of the leg work for you!". I need help with the leg work. On the test, I can't accurately measure the True Heading or the Distance....super frustrating!!!!!

    I show Sandpoint to St Maries being just barely 57nm putting the ETE at 33min. Anyone else get this? This is Figure 23 in Appendix 2 of the FAA-CT-8080-2E. I know its's only a minute difference but am I doing something wrong?

    • Grant Eckardt

      however robo is correct that most calculations are done before flight, We still us this method while flying cross countries to make sure were still on course and to verify that we have enough fuel. Cross country flying is very busy to say the least!

    • robo931
      robo931 2 years ago +1

      Andrew Wilkerson these calculations are performed before your flight, typically for a VFR flight plan.

    What about that purple dotted line on the sectional? Does that come into play in this example?

    • Jim Stanley
      Jim Stanley 10 months ago

      Comes into play _after_ this example. When you know your wind correction angle and true heading, you adjust it to your magnetic heading.
