How to use Sporty’s E6B Flight Computer


Learning to fly means learning to make a lot of calculations: wind correction angle, groundspeed, crosswind component, and so much more. The old school way to do that is with a manual E6B, often called the “whiz wheel.” Newer electronic models are much easier to use, and are still allowed on FAA tests. In this video, learn how to perform some of the most common calculations on Sporty’s popular Electronic E6B Flight Computer.

Doug grew up off the end of a runway and has wanted to fly before he could ride a bike. As the catalog manager for Sporty's Pilot Shop, he takes pride in developing products that make flying easier for pilots. After spending a short time in the military including a year in Iraq, his standards are abnormally high for pilot products. A private pilot with an instrument rating, he enjoys small prop planes more than any jet. You'll normally find him in a Cessna 172 or Skycatcher while on a mission to find the finest biscuits and gravy at an airport cafe.
