Ratings and Reviews

No nonsense E6B

CFIGuy

PFMA has been my go-to E6B for several years. No complicated menu structure to navigate. Enter distance and time, PFMA tells you ground speed. Enter ground speed and time, PFMA tells you distance.

Calculate density altitude, vertical navigation, pivotal altitude (under Rate of Turn), even cold temperature airport altitude corrections.

Very glad to see a 64-bit version released.

Excellent Update!

You can now use the Convert>Time menu to input the GMT offset of your destination. Now you can take the arrival time off of the FMS, input it in GMT, and know the arrival time in the local timezone of your destination while displaying a time to go countdown timer. Very useful for making announcements, answering the pestering inquiries of the flight attendants, etc.

I use the app constantly for evaluating Mach number changes and the corresponding ground speed changes vs ETA. The cool thing about the app is that it is designed by airline pilots for airline pilots. It works WITH the data on your FMS, but gives you answers that the FMS can't.

Must have if you fly professionally, even more so if you fly ocean crossings and want another backup navigation source!

Private pilot easy

This may be patterned after airline flight computers, but it is quite easy to use after a little reading of the online manual. There is a link to it right in the program. More importantly this is what an E6B computer should be... not a series of windows to choose the calculation, but 2 main windows to give you back and forth access that you would have if you were using a wizwheel. I have used at least 4 other apps and online webpages as well, but nothing compares to this. No more picking the "Heading, Ground Speed, WCA" when I meant to pick "Course, Ground Speed, WCA." With this app it's all in the same place and it carries over calculations between windows, which is very smart. Thank you TATA mobile.
