Wind Side of the E6-B Step 1Place grommet over 100 (grommet is circle in center of the window) Step 2Align Wind Direction with True Index Step 3Place Wind Dot up from grommet Step 4Align True Index with True Track Step 5Place Wind Dot over True Airspeed Step 6View Wind Correction Angle under Wind Dot Step 7Read Ground Speed under grommet

Step 1Place grommet over 100 Place circle in the center of window over 100.

Step 2Align wind Direction with True Index Place wind direction across from true index. Wind direction in this example is 050°.

Step 3Place Wind Dot up from grommet Place a dot upward from grommet measuring wind strength. In this example, the wind is 20 knots.

Step 4Align True Index with True Track Place TT across from true index. In this example, the TT is 190°.

Step 5Place Wind Dot over True Airspeed Place Wind Dot over True Airspeed. In this example, the True Airspeed is 106 Knots.

Step 6View Wind Correction Angle under Wind Dot View WCA under Wind Dot. The Wind Dot is 8° to the left. Therefore, you subtract WCA from TT. –Drift LeftVar East –Drift RightVar West

Step 7Read Ground Speed under grommet Read ground speed under grommet In this example, the ground speed is 120 knots.

This chart will assist you in applying the information from the flight computer. The numbers for the chart above will either be given or calculated from the flight computer. Let’s try to complete the chart. Good Luck! Applying the Information From the Flight Computer

GIVENWind= 05020kts Variation= 21°W Deviation= 2°E True Track= 190° True Airspeed=106kts Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 190° Fill in the True Track that is given.

Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 190°8°E Calculate Wind Correct Angle from flight computer. GIVENWind= 05020kts Variation= 21°W Deviation= 2°E True Track= 190° True Airspeed=106kts

Step 6View Wind Correction Angle under Wind Dot View WCA under Wind Dot. The Wind Dot is 8° to the left. Therefore, you subtract WCA from TT. –Drift LeftVar East –Drift RightVar West

Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 8°E182° Calculate True Heading by +/- WCA 190° GIVENWind= 05020kts Variation= 21°W Deviation= 2°E True Track= 190° True Airspeed=106kts

Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 8°E182°21°W Fill in Variation that is given. 190° GIVENWind= 05020kts Variation= 21°W Deviation= 2°E True Track= 190° True Airspeed=106kts

Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 8°E182°21°W203° Calculate Magnetic Heading by +/- Variation. 190° GIVENWind= 05020kts Variation= 21°W Deviation= 2°E True Track= 190° True Airspeed=106kts

8°E182°21°W203°2°E Applying the Information From the Flight Computer Fill in Deviation that is given. 190° GIVENWind= 05020kts Variation= 21°W Deviation= 2°E True Track= 190° True Airspeed=106kts

Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 8°E182°21°W203°2°E201° Calculate Compass Heading by +/- Deviation. 190° GIVENWind= 05020kts Variation= 21°W Deviation= 2°E True Track= 190° True Airspeed=106kts

Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 8°E182°21°W203°2°E201°120kts Calculate Ground Speed from flight computer. 190° GIVENWind= 05020kts Variation= 21°W Deviation= 2°E True Track= 190° True Airspeed=106kts

Step 7Read Ground Speed under grommet Read ground speed under grommet In this example, the ground speed is 120 knots.

GIVENWind= 35615kts Variation= 14°W Deviation= 1°W True Track= 44° True Airspeed=125 Applying the Information From the Flight Computer Let’s try another example. 44°

Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 44° GIVENWind= 35615kts Variation= 14°W Deviation= 1°W True Track= 44° True Airspeed=125kts Try to calculate WCA before advancing.

Step 1Place grommet over 100 Place circle in the center of window over 100.

Step 2Align wind Direction with True Index Place wind direction across from true index. Wind direction in this example is 356°.

Step 3Place Wind Dot up from grommet Place a dot upward from grommet measuring wind strength. In this example, the wind is 15 knots.

Step 4Align True Index with True Track Place TT across from true index. In this example, the TT is 44°.

Step 5Place Wind Dot over True Airspeed Place Wind Dot over True Airspeed. In this example, the True Airspeed is 125 Knots.

Step 6View Wind Correction Angle under Wind Dot View WCA under Wind Dot. The Wind Dot is 6° to the left. Therefore, you subtract WCA from TT. –Drift LeftVar East –Drift RightVar West

Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 6°E38°14°W52°1°W53° Let’s try another example. 44° GIVENWind= 35615kts Variation= 14°W Deviation= 1°W True Track= 44° True Airspeed=125kts

Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 6°E38°14°W52°1°W53°44° GIVENWind= 35615kts Variation= 14°W Deviation= 1°W True Track= 44° True Airspeed=125kts Try to calculate GS before advancing.

Step 7Read Ground Speed under grommet Read ground speed under grommet In this example, the ground speed is 113 knots.

Applying the Information From the Flight Computer 6°E38°14°W52°1°W53° Let’s try another example. 44°113kts GIVENWind= 35615kts Variation= 14°W Deviation= 1°W True Track= 44° True Airspeed=125kts
