E6B FLIGHT COMPUTER MANUAL PDF

The amount of fuel available, not including reserve fuel, is the determining factor. Fuel available, not including reserve, is 4 hr. What is your radius of action? Rotate the inner scale so that the total time of 4 hr. Without rotating the disk, locate the groundspeed for the inbound leg of kt. Look directly under to determine a time of min.

The B and C scale must be good friends. This side has three scales that you can line up to calculate things. The A scale the outermost circle , the B scale the middle circle , and C scale the inner circle. The general concept to learn is that for most problems to solve, there are three elements: you line up a number on the outer scale A with a number on the inner scale B or C , and then know where to look for your answer.

You have to reason if that means 11, , or If your ground speed is , then call Guiness, speed racer. But ? A little common sense will let you interpret the result properly. Like the flip side, it also has a rotating scale where you match one number against another. But notice the center of the circle is clear. You can mark on it with a pencil and it will erase right off. High tech, huh? The center of the circle has a small hole that is used as a reference point.

The directions for the most common use of the wind side are printed right at the top. Where should we fly today? If you know any two of those values, the third can be found easily. Line up this rate arrow with the known airspeed of on the A scale. The time of minutes reads on the B scale in line with the A simple conversion shows that minutes is 2 hours and 15 minutes.

The C scale is known as the time scale. Because we can. Fuel works a lot like those time-speed-distance problems in that knowing two values gives you a third. Knowing that we plan to burn 9 gallons per hour, we can determine how long you can fly as follows: -Line up the rate arrow with known per hour value of 9 the 90 on the E6B. In this case, our fuel is 9 gallons per hour. How fast are we going? In the same concept of Time-Speed-Distance used above, knowing that we flew the 20nm leg from Chattanooga to the next checkpoint of the Matthews Private Airport in 10 minutes,we can figure out the ground speed as follows: -Line up the known distance of 20 on the A scale with the known time of 10 on the B scale.

The rate pointer will point to your ground speed. Pointing straight across the river will cause you to drift downstream. The same concept applies to flying. When flying from one point to another, you are subject to being pushed by the river of air similar to being pushed downstream by water. Consider that a direct headwind will simply slow us down, and a direct tailwind will speed us up. However, when we adjust for a wind that has some component coming from the side, our heading must be adjusted to keep the same ground track to your destination.

This will affect our ground speed as well as our heading. Our airspeed, like we calculated above, is kts. The weather briefer told us that the wind is from degrees at 20 kts. We can determine the wind correction as follows hint: follow along with the directions at the top of the E6B : -Spin the circle to set the known wind direction of under the True Index.

In this case, the mark will be at since the was just an easy starting point. You are really just making a 20 unit mark away from the hole. Step 1: The wind direction of is under the True Index and the wind speed of 20 is marked up from the center hole.

Notice that our pencil mark has moved around some. Step 2: Spin around to put our course under the True Index. Our estimated ground speed of reads under the center hole and the wind correction angle of 8 is the number of units left or right of the center line that the pencil mark rests.

In this case, we will subtract 8 degrees from our course of for our wind correction to get magnetic variation and deviation must then be considered, but that is the topic for another day. Step 3: Slide your pencil mark to your airspeed line. The center hole marks our ground speed and your pencil mark shows our left or right wind correction angle in degrees..

In aviation, the same concept applies. Take, for instance, cross country flight planning. The way most pilots initially learn to calculate wind correction, time in route and fuel burn is a manual E6B and a sheet of paper.

Which one you use is a personal preference — both are easy and accurate in their own way. I recommend using the manual E6B to calculate and then using an electronic version or computer flight planner to double check your work.

Spin The Wheel In a time where calculators and computers can give us virtually instant information, the manual E6B is still a staple in my flight bag.

Sure, I have an electronic version of the E6B on my phone, but I find it to be quicker to spin the wheel on my trusty metal version than to open an app, find the function I want and type in the values. Plus, the good old metal one will never get low on batteries. Tell me what you fly with — do you prefer a manual or electronic flight computer?

Rotate the wheel to align your numerator on Scale A with your denominator on Scale B. If you fast forward five hours from the time I first read that quote you get this:. As your E6B skills improve, you will be able to do problems like this much faster than you could with a calculator. I made this post with the goal of providing a reference which could be used to learn the bulk of the essential E6B skills quickly and without frustration. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
