FAA Approves iPad For Use in Pilot Cabin
"The Federal Aviation Administration has certified Apple's iPad for use in pilot cabins. Pilots won't be playing Angry Birds: The approval paves the way to replacing some forty pounds worth of dead trees in pilot bags with shiny apps."
I'm sure these pilots will be happy to lose the large carry bags full of maps, charts, etc. but it does bring up another question. If they are allowing iPads in the cabin, and I'm assuming at any stage of the trip, then how are they going to get around the people that will be complaining when they are told to put away their electronic devices because of interference they supposedly cause? I for one doubt they will even care about it and continue with this policy. What are your thoughts?
