Sporty’s Pilot Shop, the world’s largest pilot shop, brings you the E6B Flight Computer for the iPad and iPhone!
Based on Sporty’s popular handheld E6B Electronic Flight Computer, the E6B for has been designed from the ground up to make the most of iOS on the iPhone and iPad. The software is based on the tried and true formulas and algorithms developed over the years by Sporty’s team of over 50 pilots.
Its pilot-friendly design makes quick work of any navigational, weight and balance, or fuel problem and it also performs conventional arithmetic calculations.
The advanced timer/clock feature simultaneously tracks Zulu, Local and Home time zones. The timer counts either up or down, and will display an alert when reaching zero.

NOTE: iOS E6B applications are not approved for use on FAA tests (we think it'd be great for tests, but the FAA doesn't want you texting your flight instructor for help).
Sporty’s E6B is an instructional aid and is not to be used for navigation.
