Apple’s new iPad 2

American Airline using ipad
Apple’s new iPad 2 is getting more and more popular day by day as more people preferring to use iPad instead of taking papers along with them. You can judge the importance of iPad by the recent news that American Airlines are testing to replace their old system of paper navigational charts with new iPads to cut their cost and save up to $1.2 million a year in fuel and also to make cockpits paperless.
Pilot flight bags typically weigh 35 pounds or more, and contain navigational charts and other important flight information. The tablets are being tested on two flights departing Los Angles for Tokyo and Shanghai, respectively. The Federal Aviation Administration has approved the iPad tables for all phases of flight, allowing for the first time the use of device during takeoff and landing.
American Airline pilots started testing iPads last Thursday as a part to make that whole process paperless and especially to make commercial airline cockpits paperless. Following the same footings, Alaska Airlines will also issue iPads to their pilots. The 1.5 pound iPads replaces up to 25 pounds of paper flight manuals that the pilots carry with them when they fly. Texas-based American Airlines said the use of the Apple devices will reduce enough weight that it would cut the airline’s annual fuel bill by about $1.2 million. The Alaska Airlines expects to completely switchover from old system to new iPads by this month.
