  • Love the new UI

    by 66 V-Tail

    This app has been updated to use the slider menu from the side. Really makes navigating the app so much easier! I've got too many E6B apps (it's a personal problem, don't go there:) this app has a very unique approach. At first I didn't like the graphics that goes along with each solution but now it helps me visualize the problem! e.g. Best Rate of climb vs Best Angle has a very nice pic which is easy to see the difference! Plus Double Dog Studio does a good job with there apps!

  • Excellent

    by Ksp_530

    Must have for ipad.

  • Great pilot tool!

    by Drkusa

    Excellent cockpit tool...easy to use for quick computations in-flight as well as on the ground.


    by 5710F

    This app is absolutely amazing. I recommend it for all pilots weather you fly a Cherokee like me, a GV, or a 748.... It provides so much valuable info, heck more than I need, but since I am in the field of aviation, it will help tremendously with the addition of Foreflight! Can't wait to go flying with this great program..... Oh, and for my first app purchase, I'm VERY satisfied.

  • A lot of calculations

    by EvilSpudBoy

    It has a lot of calculations and the layout is nice. It doesn't seem to have the ability to carry values from one calculation to another. For example, if I calculate heading and groundspeed, if I want to use the groundspeed in a time and distance calculation and then use the time to calculate fuel consumption for the leg, I can't do that.

  • Alot of options

    by airwolfbell222

    This is a cool and unique app, it goes way above and beyond your normal E6B. You can calculate simple things like pressure altitude to complex things like aircraft loan repayments and aircraft operating costs. The one thing I struggle with in this program is there are so many conversions and calculations, it can be overwhelming in finding basic stuff that your used to seeing on your basic electronic E6B. But they do provide a solution for this by allowing you to favorite/bookmark important calculations. some of the names of the formulas seem to differ slightly from what I'm used to seeing, but that being said, you get a lot for your money. One thing I would like is also just a basic calculator function.

  • New version screwed up

    by Zbuilder

    Under the TOUR, the icons do not match the descriptions. The fields need more description of what exactly is need for the type of answer. No where is there any place to set your airplanes defaults even though it reads that one screen feeds another, this does not seem to always work.
