Navigating With The E6-B

Whiz Wheels Make Whiz Kids

Written for the Notre Dame Pilot Initiative

By the Pilots of the University of Notre Dame

“Teaching the Science, Inspiring the Art, Producing Aviation Candidates!”

Quote

“A bird flies according to mathematical principles.”

Leonardo DaVinci 1505

swiss army knife
Swiss Army Knife
  • Cut electrical wires during fire or splicing frayed wires
  • Cutting the ribbon on a gift plane
  • Cutting off your seat harness if you need to bail out
  • Use the magnifying glass to better read sectionals
  • Use it to bang on an indicator if you have them
  • Tightening screws
  • Amputating your leg after a crash
  • To get a knob unstuck (radios or dipstick)
  • Cut a parachute line after arriving on the ground
  • Open the ELT hatch to manually activate the ELT
  • Unclog static port
  • Intimidating other pilots while waiting to takeoff
  • Keep away hijackers, go for the jugular

  • Time, Speed, Distance Problems
  • Fuel Problems
  • Density Altitude & TAS Problems
slide rules
Slide Rules
  • Time is always on the inside scale
  • Distance or Gallons is always on the outside scale
  • http://www.asa2fly.com/files/support/E6B_Manual.pdf
conversions
Conversions
  • Gallons to Pounds
    • 1 gallon = 6 pounds
    • 38 pounds = 6.4 gallons
      • And vice-versa

Conversions
  • Nautical to Statue Miles
    • 1NM = 1.15SM
    • 33NM = 38SM
      • And vice-versa

Conversions
  • Celsius to Fahrenheit
    • 15C = 59F
    • 0C = 32F
      • And vice-versa

Time, Speed, & Distance
  • Used with Dead Reckoning Flying
  • Accurate
  • Never fails due to lack of electricity or signal
slide10

30 Miles in 8.5 Minutes

Going 211 Kts, you can fly how far in 4.5 hours?

211 * 4.5 = 950

fuel consumption
Fuel Consumption
  • Very similar to Time, Speed, Distance Problems
  • Time is always on inside scale
  • Gallons or Pounds of Fuel
slide12

Archer 11ND burns 9.5 GPH

How long can you fly on 13 gallons?

Refueled 35 Gallons

Fly for 3:40

1:22

altitude airspeed adjustments
Altitude & Airspeed Adjustments
  • You can find Density Altitude & True Airspeed
  • Density Altitude is the pressure altitude corrected for temperature (what the airplane really “feels”)
  • True Airspeed is the airspeed corrected for altitude and temperature (how fast the airplane is moving through the less dense air)

Wind Calculations
  • Can find groundspeed and wind correction angle given wind data (Focus in this course)
  • Can find wind data given groundspeed and wind correction angle
  • Can solve two step problems involving finding time to station knowing TAS & Wind
