Based on Sporty’s popular handheld E6B Electronic Flight Computer, the E6B app has been designed from the ground up to make the most of iOS on the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, and MacOS on Apple Computers. The software is based on the tried and true formulas and algorithms developed over the years by Sporty’s team of over 50 pilots. Its pilot-friendly design makes quick work of any navigational, conversion or fuel problem and it also performs conventional arithmetic calculations. The advanced timer/clock feature simultaneously tracks Zulu, Local and Home time zones. The timer counts either up or down, and will display an alert when reaching zero. 27 AVIATION FUNCTIONS -Pressure & Density Altitude -Planned True Airspeed -Heading and Groundspeed -Compass Heading -Leg Time -Fuel Required -Crosswind, Headwind and Tailwind -Cloud Base and Freezing Level -Actual True Airspeed -Actual True Altitude -Wind Speed and Direction -Groundspeed -Planned Mach Number -Required True Airspeed -Required Calibrated Airspeed -Distance Flown -Endurance -Fuel per Hour -Actual Mach Number -Percent Mean Aerodynamic Chord (MAC) -Hydroplane Speed -Required Rate of Climb -Specific Range -Pivotal Altitude -Top of Descent -Required Rate of Descent -Glide Distance 22 AVIATION CONVERSIONS -Celsius :: Fahrenheit -Nautical Miles :: Statute Miles -Nautical Miles :: Kilometers -Feet :: Meters -Pounds :: Kilograms -Avgas Gallons :: Pounds -Jet A Gallons :: Pounds -Gallons :: Liters -Hours/Minutes/Seconds :: Hours -Climb FT/NM :: Climb Percent -Climb FT/NM :: Climb Degrees CALCULATOR -Perform basic math without having to exit the application CLOCK/TIMER -Simultaneous tracking of Zulu, Home and Local time zones -Advanced timer counts up or down and operates independently so you can perform other calculations while the timer is running -Upon reaching zero in the countdown mode, a message will display no matter what app is active – a useful feature for missed approaches, switching fuel tanks, etc.



  • Buggy

    Lots of little bugs unfortunately, double check if answers make sense before you fill out your navlog.
  • Good but…

    By Puka Luke
    The = button on iPhone will scramble negative the number for the first tap, second tap will convert back to a close by number but not original number. I don’t know if it’s the calculation or Sporty’s ground school quiz answers are wrong. I got a different answer (off by 20 feet) when calculating density altitude. I made sure to clear all history and continue to be off of the quiz answers.
  • Heading and groundspeed not working?

    By Trailljuan
    I deleted the app and reinstalled it to see if that would help. I enter the data but it produces nothing but zeros on the right side. This is a new issue. I hadn't previously had this issue seen it until about a week ago.
  • Sports E6B. Has at least one bug

    By DoBetterRuss
    Version 3.4.5 when finding density altitude the App fills in the answer (appears to be correct) but when the = sign is pressed an incorrect answer is displayed. I don’t trust the app. I expected more from sportys.
  • You guys are awesome

    Your so cool you make school fun
  • Excellent resource

    By Gijerr
    Great calculator/app. Use it all the time. Very user friendly!!
  • Great function, small bugs

    By Nickolasnames
    While completing some tasks it gives the correct answer without hitting the “=“ key. Which is handy, however, when hitting the “=“ key the app fails and kicks you out. Other than that it’s a great resource.

    What kind of E6B app doesn’t have Weights and Balance!? This one. Unless you plug in a profile for a specific aircraft. Glad I wasted money on this app and it doesn’t have basic features.
  • Very useful

    By sooperdooperdave
    Useful for aviation related questions. Also useful for many technical non aviation questions.
  • Requires full size keyboard on iPad

    By Ak_intl
    If you're considering this app for your iPad, look elsewhere. How long are they going to take to support the small size keyboard on ipad? All the other positives are moot with this app until they fix this. I never use the full size keyboard on iPad which makes using this app a total pain. Extra frustrating as a paid subscriber.
