The Aero Products Research APR E6-B2WL Pilot Flight Computer is a Wind Triangle and T/S/D navigation computer. It features the new, exclusive Low Windspeed Cursor Arm which quickly shows ground speed, wind correction angle, and heading, thereby eliminating two set-ups and the need to mark a dot on the plastic disc. The Low Windspeed Cursor Arm makes solving wind problems a breeze.
Simply set your true course, rotate cursor arm to wind direction, and read your wind correction angle and groundspeed. A color enhanced sawtooth scale on the Windspeed Cursor Arm is user-friendly and allows for quick, accurate reading. Instructions for Windspeed Cursor set-up are printed at the top of the low speed (40 to 270 knots or miles) computer slide.
The Time/Speed/Distance computer provides all major navigation computations and more. The T/S/D face of the E6-B2WL calculates all necessary flight planning and en route navigation requirements.
It shows fuel consumption solutions, density altitude factors, conversions for true airspeed and altitude, Mach number, kilometers, minutes to seconds, statute to nautical to statute miles, off-course and drift corrections, and slide-rule mathematics. Instructions printed on the T/S/D make learning faster and easier.
The flight planning wind triangle information slide shows formulae for true course to compass headings as well as illustrated examples of east/west magnetic variation. Also displayed are definitions relevant to wind triangle problems and diagrams of true heading and true course solutions.
Nautical and statute scales for Sectional and WAC charts are printed on the sides of the slide. A headwind and crosswind component grid depicts the relative wind angle in a multi-color graphic for accurate and easy interpretation.
