Discover how an iPad is used in commercial aviation

The daily operations involving all types of aircraft are estimated in thousands. In civil and military aviation iPads have arrived some time, with the aim of facilitating the operations for the cabin personnel. Join us to discover how it is possible .
We must remember that it was in April of the year 2010 the date in which these devices came to the market of the hand of Apple. It was in May 2011, when the Federal Aviation Administration of the United States authorized the airlines of that country to introduce the iPad into the cabins, in order to facilitate the piloting work .
Today it is already common in any airline, and there are several reasons for this. First, they replace enough kilos of manuals on paper and transport everything in electronic format. It is estimated that the average weight on paper is around 16 kilos, imagine having to look for any incidence between so much volume of pages .
Secondly, they have immediate access to a multitude of specific applications for their work as pilots. We could cite those checklists, specific meteorological applications, daily flight records, data recording, etc . The pilots can check out, approach and roll, as well as meteorology in just seconds, as well as having all the documentation in one device, always having the resources of a lifetime, which of course are mandatory. In addition the GPS device integrated in the iPad does not influence at all in the instruments of the airplane , being an extra help if there were possible instrument failures.
Obviously it is an improvement on your daily routine, but now okay. What model of iPad should a pilot buy? Consulted the page , they conclude that the iPad Pro is too big with its almost 13 inches and the iPad Mini maybe too small. They opt for a very specific configuration, the iPad 10.5 inches, only WiFi and with a capacity of 256 GB, the alternative model being the 9.7-inch iPad only WiFi of 128 GB .
So you know, technology helps in many more areas than we think . Are you a pilot and can you tell us if you use the iPad in flight? We will be happy to read it in comments.
