In addition, computer programs to emulate the flight computer functions are also available, both dlight computers and smartphones.

Used to make fliteplans in Air Force Reply. It only works in whole units for minutes.

How much manuap did you gain? Place TC under True Index. It is also where you will read all variables except time. If you suspect it will take hours between legs, the method is the same except: If your mark falls to the right add the value.

The arcs represent the wind velocity in knots.

These new technologies can draw the results of the calculation and mark wind correction components and speeds. So then, is the mechanical E6B dead? Can i calculate unknown wind direction and speed with the e6b if i have, oat, pressure altitude, Tas and heading? Its time to put them to work!

They are usually made out of cardboard and plastic, or aluminum and plastic, with lettering and markings either printed or engraved into the metal. Plus, the good old metal one will never get low on batteries.

Different pointers will give you outputs in different units or bases. You need to descend 5,ft in 7 minutes.

The changes included moving the “10” mark to the top instead of the original “60”. On a cross country flight, you climb at feet per minute for 7 minutes. This side has three scales that you can line up to calculate things. The outer scale is used to represent distance, fuel, ground speed, true airspeed, or corrected true altitude, depending on the calculation being performed.

The wind correction angle is determined by matching how far right or left the pencil mark is from the hole, to the wind correction angle portion of the slide’s grid. It was hugely popular with both the military and the airlines.

Like leg time, the pointer and scales you use will be different if you are working with seconds, minutes, or hours. It was helpful for me.


I thought to myself, what reassuring words! One common feature of all slide rules, the E6B included, is that they do not account for order fflight magnitude.

Modern E6Bs are essentially copies of the original s design anyway! Learning how to use an E6B is going to be a piece of cake!

Is going to take hours, minutes, or seconds to get between these two points? What descent rate will you need?

Use your flight computer to solve these practice problems answers are located below. Cockpits were illuminated this way at night. The circular portion can be turned. If you okay, Can I Capture your post and your picture for studying? These flight computers are used during flight planning on the ground before takeoff to aid in calculating fuel burn, wind correction, time en route, and other items. Thank you very much!

In the ground exams for numerous pilot ratings, programmable calculators or calculators containing flight planning software are permitted to be used. So, if I multiply 9 by 9, I need to know that the 81 output I receive is 81 and notor , This post is Great.
