The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has already granted early approval for airplane cockpits to use the iPad inside, as major commercial airline companies including Delta want to use Apple’s famous tablet in order to do away with paper maps. We think that this is a good idea, but it might be good to throw in a paper map as well just in case the iPad malfunctions or run out of juice – you can never tell what might happen, right? Apart from that, the FAA has also started to grant approval for “electronic flight bags,” alternatively known as computers for aviation use in the last decade. Apart from that, at least the pilots can keep themselves entertained with Angry Birds while they’re halfway through their journey.
