ASA's color E6-B is enhanced with color for quick identification of key elements and easier readability.
The new color E6-B is based on ASA's most popular model: slide-rule-style flight computer, the ASA-E6B. It's identical in size to the venerable favorite, made with the same solid aluminum construction and featuring all the functionality pilots have relied on for decades.
On the circular side, black is used for the rate arrow and units to be calculated, red is used for weight and volume and blue is used for distance, time and temperature scales.
On the wind side, colors are used to identify wind variation: blue identifies west (or right wind correction angle) and red identifies east (or left wind correction angle).
