An E6B For The 21st Century...
If you want all the
functionality of an E6B but wouldn't be caught dead playing with an
archaic old whizwheel, then "Uncle Hal" has a deal for you.
The same calculations that can be made on Sporty’s best
selling Electronic E6B can now be made on Palm-based PDAs. With
Sporty's E6B Software for PDAs, pilots can perform 19 aviation
functions and 14 standard aviation conversions right on a PDA.
Featuring the same
pilot-friendly design as the original Sporty's E6B, the Palm
Software makes quick work of any navigational, weight and balance,
or fuel problem and it also performs conventional arithmetic
The software prompts you for the proper inputs as you work
through a problem line-by-line. Information from previous
computations is automatically retained for future use so there is
no need to retype old data into new problems.
Available exclusively from Sporty’s, the E6B Software for
PDAs works on any PDA device using Palm OS 4.0 or newer.
However, the PDA software is not authorized for use during FAA
exams (ain't there ALWAYS a catch???).
