Reviewer’s Feedback

I just finished reviewing Fly Anything Incorporated's (Rob Manion's) newest product, Tips and Tricks for the Manual E6B Flight Computer. I've been in aviation for 20 years, 17 of them professionally, and I can say for the first time that I finally, really understand how to use this device. Fly Anything's product is to the point, clear and concise, and makes learning the E6B easy. I may just have to start carrying one on the Boeing 737 now that I know how to use it.!

Fly Anything and his staff have done it again. They’ve created another outstanding tutorial for pilots in training, or for anyone else who wants to learn how to use an E6-B calculator. I’ve previously evaluated five of the “Fly Anything” products and this is definitely the best yet. As with the others, the thoroughness of presentation is unmatched. The format and ease of use make this tutorial ideal for anyone at any level of piloting proficiency.
