South African 1time airline pilots to travel with iPad 2 tablets

The compute airliner 1time is planning to include iPad 2 tablets onto the flight decks which will allow them to get hold of emails, rosters, passenger details, system information and electronic weight, as well as balance and the latest weather updates. The FAA has mentioned that the iPad 2 doesn’t interfere with any aeroplane equipment.

The 10 hour battery life means that pilots can use it during long flights without having the need to connect it to a socket to charge. The SA Civil Aviation Authority and Apple are working together to bring up this technology to airplanes.
