Planes Flown By iPads?


Well, not quite.

But according to Bloomberg, commercial airlines could start using the Boeing app by this Summer to control where their planes go.

Some smaller planes are already using iPad apps instead of traditional paper maps, so this is just a step forward.

And YES, they're [Jeppesen] working on an Android version for all you Apple-haters, which should be out this year. ;] But if you are one, you're on the wrong blog..

  2. Wow, thats pretty awesome but I don't know if I would want to trust it... I guess if you still have backup navigation it would be ok.

  3. Sounds like a good idea. Controlling autopilot with an iPad. I doubt they're actually flying the plane in real time with it. what if they hit turbulance and the iPad goes flying?
