FlightMath was developed with pilots and flight sim fans in mind, to replace the clumsy ASA E6-B Flight Computer. It takes full advantage of the Mac's interface to make the traditionally tedious preflight calculations extremely easy (some say even fun).
For instance, instead of fussing with pencilling marks on the back of the E-6B to compute wind correction angles, you simply drag the hands around a compass rose, with a hand each for wind direction and true course. Other features include:
- Fuel analysis, with mixed units (How far will 3 liters of fuel take me if I burn 8.1 gallons per hour?)
- Speed and distance calculations, with mixed units (If I fly at 75 mph for 23 minutes, how many nautical miles will I fly?)
- Temperature conversions (What is the Fahrenheit equivalent of 24ï¿½C?)
- Density altitude calculations
