The best-selling E6B app for iPad and iPhone is now even better! Sporty’s Pilot Shop, the world’s largest pilot shop, brings you the all new E6B Flight Computer 2.0. This new version of the app takes all the core functions of the original E6B app and adds improved functionality, a redesigned interface and an all new weight & balance calculator.
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 and iPad. 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, weight and balance, 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.

WEIGHT & BALANCE CALCULATOR
The new weight & balance calculator makes computing aircraft loading problems a breeze. The app allows you to create and store multiple aircraft profiles, and then quickly edit the various weights and arms for quick calculations. After adding the weight of your pilot and passengers, fuel and baggage, you’ll instantly see your takeoff weight and center of gravity (CG). It’ll also compute zero fuel weight and landing weight, and shows an instant analysis to to verify that you’re within limits.

What's New in Version 2.1
Updated user interface
Great for flight planning
An instructor recommended this to me to save time on flight plans. While you still need to know how to use the old fashioned E6B, this is such a great tool to have at your disposal. It is simple to use and so far has been accurate. I so learning about all it's features but so far, it's great.
The clock widget has three clocks that all show the same time; they are labeled to show Zulu, local, and home.
Correction....I'm an idiot. Fixed under the main settings page. :)
W&B Function Useless
If you are looking for an app to perform weight and balance calculations to see if you are within your safe flight envelope, don't buy this product. There is no graphical presentation provided. All is does is compute total moment.
