Sporty's E6B Adds Pan-Apple Device Support

From Tablets to Watches, Phones to Laptops, the Pilot's Computer is Ready to Go with a Single Purchase 

Sporty's has released their E6B Flight Computer app on the Macintosh platform, making it a one-stop, multi-platform purchase that will grant access to every device in the Apple ecosystem. 

Users will get a pilot-coded, pilot-designed app, with an "intuitive menu layout and plain English explanations for each function", a far cry from the average, unsupported, no-name E6B drek that can be found everywhere online. The interface has been designed for a consistent user experience across all systems, retaining as much as possible between iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac. The app came about from pilot requests for those who prefer to do the majority of their flight planning on a larger, more easily readable screen, said Sporty's vice president John Zimmerman. 

“Based on customer feedback, many pilots prefer to do a lot of the preliminary flight planning work from a computer’s large screen. For example, when using the online version of ForeFlight, we find it helpful to have access to the E6B Mac app at the same time for quick performance calculations." 

Sporty's notes that the app is not approved for use during FAA knowledge tests, but is perfectly suited to preflights, flight simulation, and any other E6B use case. The app is available for $9.99 in the Mac App Store. For those who already own the E6B app on their iPad or iPhone, the Mac download is available at no additional cost.
