British Airways Equipping 3,600 Pilots with iPads

The iPad outclasses heavy and cumbersome flight manuals in pretty much every measurable characteristic I can think of. I bet those pilots think Christmas has come early.

It seems to be the week for iPad pilot news — Federico Viticci has a great article over at Macstories, interviewing Erik Hess, a F-5N Tiger II pilot. Spoiler alert: he uses an iPad whilst flying. Great read and fascinating story.

British Airways aren’t the only airline rolling out iPads to their staff: Qatar are getting in on some action, too.

Oh, just in case anyone was wondering where most of Samsung’s Galaxy Notes have gone to, look no further than American Airlines. They’ve bought 17,000 of the damn things. Seems to sum up everything I’ve heard about AA.
