The E6B Circular Flight Computer combines high-quality construction with easy-to-read lettering to deliver the most productive, accurate, and convenient manual flight computer availalble. Perform a couple of calculations ranging from basic arithmetic and flight planning problems to complex in-flight computations. The calculator side of the computer uses conventional slide rule procedures to solve for multiplication, division, and unit conversion and employs scales for performing time, speed, distance, rate, fuel consumption, altitude, airspeed, air temperature, and pressure pattern calculations. The wind side of the computer provides a graphic method of solving problems and displaying the answers in a useful form. Use the wind side for easy addition and subraction problems and also to solve for true wind, winds in flight, true course and ground speed, true heading and true airspeed, and off-course correction calculations. The matte finish at the wind side of the calculator can also be marked with a pencil all the way through use, and easly wiped clean to allow input for the next problem. The E6B Circular Flight Computer is a useful gizmo to make use of all the way through flight planning, flight training or studying, and can be utilized all the way through FAA written knowledge exams. Pilots flying faster aircraft at higher altitudes will find this computer useful in gaining insight to the external atmospheric conditions and the effects they have got on in-flight performance.
