APR’s Student Pilot Wind Triangle & T/S/D Navigation Computer features the patent pending exclusive Wind Speed Cusor Arm that quickly tells you groundspeed, wind correction angle, and magnetic heading. The new APR Windspeed Cursor eliminates two set-ups and the need to mark dots on the plastic disc. This revolutionary windspeed cursor computer is available only from APR through your aviation dealer. There is no similar computer on the market!
The E6-B8D calculates all necessary flight planning and en route navigation requirements. Color-coded sawtooth scales are user-friendly and allow for quick, accurate reading. Instructions printed on the computer make learning faster and easier.
The Time/Speed/Distance computer provides all major navigation computations.
The new APR 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. Instructions for Windspeed Cursor set-up are printed on the computer slide.
The flight planning side of the wind triangle 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. The headwind and crosswind component grid depicts the relative wind angle in a multi-color graphic for accurate and easy interpretation. Nautical and Statute scales for Sectional and WAC Charts are printed on the sides of the slide.
Unlike our competitors’ student computers which are made with paper, composite, or fiber board, APR’s student computers are made with PVC Plastic.
