Aluminum E6B

From Sporty's in original vinyl holder with manual. Just reimburse the postage to mail it. Please PM because TapCis doesn't pick up this section and I don't use the web view much. Thanks.

We used to say that the price of an aluminum E6B was the sum of its list price and that of the plastic one you bought first, and left sitting on the glareshield one sunny day...;-)

Still got mine (aluminum, that is) in the sleeve. I was recently showing my 13-y.o. daughter how to use it and realized how utterly pointless it is. ...probably won't try to teach her cell nav either.

I switched to the round CR-style computer back in the 80's and that's still what I carry. I like it a lot better than the E6B.

I remember spending hours with my CR and the book back in 1959. Never did get all the functions figured out but it was fun hangar flying in the living room.
