    Welp I was getting excited to start flight training again until I found the e6b in my flight bag f this LOL!! I never could figure that damn thing out and whomever invented it clearly sold their soul to the devil, because no mortal human could have came up with that device.

    Maybe now that I'm 16yrs wiser I can finally master this damn thing!

    I don't know. When I got my private pilot smartphones weren't a thing yet so there wasn't that option.

    No one uses the e6b except for the written test. ForeFlight does all that for you and is approved for primary use. The FAA examiner here is interested in your real world knowledge and ability, not if you can fly the way they did when he learned.

    It’s a great way to debrief your flights. Don’t think you’re gonna get internet famous and collect a paycheck from it though

    As a CFI, I recommend it to students who want to review flights. Excellent way to go over a flight more in-depth when you’re done. Especially radio usage. Only rule I give is click record and forget it during flight.
