Three Sessions to Focus on iPads in the Cockpit
If you were to look into the cockpit of a business aircraft in flight, chances are good that on the pilot's lap you would see an iPad rather than a paper chart. Tablet devices and the accompanying applications are revolutionizing aviation, and nowhere will that be more evident than next week at NBAA2012. Three education sessions will provide information not only about the latest apps and hardware for business aviation, but also about best practices when it comes to the use of electronic flight bags in the cockpit.
