Commercial airlines look to Apple’s iPad for paperless cockpits

14 March 2011

Delta Air Lines is pursuing approval to test iPads and other tablet-style devices in its airline cockpits next quarter. The news comes just after the FAA endorsed the use of the iPad in a test project at Executive Jet Management.
