APR’s Student Pilot Wind Triangle & T/S/D Navigation Computer quickly tells you groundspeed, wind correction angle, and magnetic heading. APR's E6-B8 student computers are made entirely of plastic. Competitors' models are fiberboard or paper; there is no similar computer on the market!
The E6-B8P calculates all necessary flight planning and en route navigation requirements. Easy-to-read 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 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.
Bonus NP-8 Training PlotterThe NP-8 Bonus Training Plotter illustrates how to measure courses on latitude and longitude lines. Four protractor scales and graphic instructions allow you to read courses on the east/west and north/south quadrants and eight scales help to measure statute and nautical distances. The plotter has 1/10” and ¼” rulers and formulae to determine true course to magnetic course and magnetic course to true course.
