Anyone who is old enough to remember when a computer didn't mean something electronic, might be able to relate to a Jeppesen Flight Computer. It's like a slide rule that once solved the mysteries of tangents, signs and cosigns in trigonometry. The Jeppesen is the same thing and more and it's round.

I got my first one when I was taking pilot training in my senior year of college. It could calculate true air speed and ground speed, distance, fuel usage, time to destination, and several other calculations you might not use but it was there if you needed it that one time. Soon after I kept it in my glove compartment for long car trips, and as long as I maintained my speed and knew that Birmingham, AL was 230 miles away, I could predict to the minute my time of arrival at the same place.

If you are learning to fly for the first time by Piper Cub or Cherokee, and your airfoil doesn't have an inertial navigation system, this is a must for the student pilot.

It's still a novel experience to know there is a computer that doesn't depend on a charge and gives you accurate information to distance, time, amount of fuel, etc, etc.

This is what seems to be a marvel of genius.

This is made out of paper instead of aluminum which is not durable enough for what I put these through.

Each and every beginning flight student needs to have this in his flight equipment. It's accurate, easy to learn and reduces the learning load of the student.

Flight computer does what needs to do. However, is just a few dollars cheaper than the metal version. I don't think is worth the money, given the small difference.

A flight computer is a flight computer. But now they make them out of cardboard.. which won't last as long as the old metal flight computers we used to use.

This is a great Flight Comuter for student to learn the basics. The accompaing manual is easy to read and understand. Highly recommend for beginners.

This is made out of paper - this should be put in the description. I expected a metal product. Charging me $15 for this thing is BS.

Works fine, durable enough to make it through at least one pilot rating. I'm wishing I would've opted for the plastic one instead.

Its cheaper because it is made of cardboard paper. When I get my license I will get a metal one.
