Tablets take to the skies

Airlines across the world are starting to arm their pilots with tablets and the weighty carry-on flight bags full of papers and manuals could soon become a thing of the past.

Airlines around the world are issuing pilots iPad 2’s for use on the flight deck as an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) to replace weighty carry-on flight bags filled with paper documentation and manuals.

I flew on a domestic flight recently with South African budget carrier 1time www.1time.co.za, the first airline in Africa to deploy Apple’s iPad 2 in the flight deck as an EFB.
