APR E6-B2 Flight Computer

I have an Aero Products Research Inc. E6-B2 Flight Computer for sale.

These flight computers are used during flight planning (on the ground before takeoff) to aid in calculating fuel burn, wind correction, time en route, and other items. In the air, the flight computer can be used to calculate ground speed, estimated fuel burn and updated estimated time of arrival. The back is designed for wind correction calculations, i.e., determining how much the wind is affecting one's speed and course.

In flight training for a private pilot or instrument rating mechanical flight computers are still often used to teach the fundamental computations. This is in part also due to the complex nature of some trigonometric calculations which would be comparably difficult to perform on a conventional scientific calculator. The graphic nature of the flight computer also helps catching many errors which in part explains their continued popularity.

This complete set is one is from 1971, but its still used today. It is made of high quality aluminum. Vinyl case and instruction booklet included.

Its perfect for any new pilots that are training, getting their private/commercial license or is a great for anyone collecting older aviation material.
