American Airlines Trading Paper for iPads



+ Add a Comment


I, for one, think this makes a ton of sense. Although I am not a pilot, I do travel for a living and have worked hard to get paperless. My bag weighs 1/3 of what it used to weigh, and my shoulders and back are thankful for it.

The iPad, especially on a knee or control yoke mount, seems like it would be a perfect in-flight tool since they could use it to replace not only charts, but perhaps flight manuals, checklists, etc. I guess as long as they're not up there playing Angry Birds, I'm all for it.

Of course, just because the cockpit will be allowed to have an iPad switched on, you KNOW the FCC and the airlines will NOT be lifting the ban on us lowly passengers...
