Sporty's E6B Flight Computer
By Sporty's Pilot Shop
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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. 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.
The included Apple Watch app runs natively on the watch (no iPhone required after it's installed) and includes the same 22 functions and 18 conversions as the iPhone/iPad app.

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.

Best 10 bucks I have ever spent
I have the Sporty’s E6B calculator and the old fashion wiz wheel, this by far is so less complicated and a must for all pilots. Built in calculator as well since the iPad doesn’t have one. A pity you can’t use it for your exam but it made it easy for my check ride.
I bought this app to help me with calculations that I didn't know how to do on the mechanical e6b and to cross check myself. Really nice and convenient app to have for cross country planning.
