FlyBy E6B is an essential application for all pilots. Designed by a professional airline pilot it includes many features not found in other E6B programs.
Originally published in 1999, this version conforms to the iPhone interface but retains the familiar look, feel and format of the original FlyBy E6B. If you used FlyBy E6B before, then you should feel right at home with the iOS version. We have faithfully reproduced the menu order and input/output screens.

What’s new for iOS:
Apple’s iOS brings with it connectivity and processing power that was not available to the Palm OS devices that FlyBy E6B was originally written for.
- FlyBy E6B now includes a weather page that will display the current METAR/TAF/Decoded weather for an ICAO reporting station, downloaded directly from the NOAA weather service.
- The Track and Distance Navigation module now includes a Great Circle track plotting feature that will display your route on a map. The Map view allows you to drag and drop the departure and destination pins anywhere on the map. The Map view also includes basic GPS data: Speed, True Track, Altitude, Distance Remaining, Track to Destination, Cross Track Error, ETE and ETA. (Only available on iOS devices that have GPS receivers or connected to Bluetooth GPS devices like the
Bad Elf Pro GPS.)
- All functions now include an offline help page that can be accessed by pressing the small “i” button.
- Large easy to read screen fonts.
- Familiar FMC like user interface (iPad).
- Custom colour menu and function backgrounds (iPhone).
- New favourite menu: With over 60 functions to use we recognize that you may only need two or three on a regular basis. Instead of navigating the function menus to find your function simply create your own list of most used functions!

Always improving:
FlyBy E6B was one of the very first applications of its kind published for the Palm OS. Used by thousands of pilots the world over, it has evolved from the suggestions and feedback we have received. This is an “active” application. Before you purchase any App always check the developers web site and customer support. We will respond to ALL support emails! Drop us a line. We would love to hear from you.

From True Airspeed, to Point of No Return calculations, FlyBy E6B does it all.

Fast and easy to use, FlyBy E6B is consistent with the simple SkyWriter Software style you have come to expect.
All input and calculated values are retained after exiting the program. Calculated values are also automatically transferred from one function to the next.
