I have been using the same Kane 6B computer since I was 16. I’m now nearly 60. If you give me that, a Douglas protractor, a Sifeba navaid rule and a map and I’ll go anywhere on the planet. With all the fantastic technology at our disposal in the cockpit these days I still don’t leave the ground on a nav trip without them in my flight bag. That one brilliant computer is indispensable because electrical systems sometimes fail and batteries do go flat and you still have to do the math.
