Aviation Milestone

The iPad

United/Continental airlines announced that it is providing 11,000 iPads to its flight crews. The iPads will replace paper manuals, charts, logbooks used by the United/Continental pilots.

Previously pilots carried flight bags full of paper manuals, airways-airport charts….almost 38 pounds of paper. The flight bag use to be somewhat of a status symbol….no longer!

The iPad is certainly changing technology and a milestone change in commercial aviation. Immediate updates are now downloaded almost instantaneously.

The take-a-way: new technology = new opportunities
