The simple iPad apps pilots use to fly better



Nothing else that you have to look up to the sky to realize the amount of airplanes that cross the airspace from one point to another of the planet continuously. The comfort and cost reduction of this means of transport has made it very popular.

And how could it be otherwise, all technological advances end up finding their way, also for the world of commercial aviation. A work tool as versatile as the iPad also has its place in the cabin of the aircraft , to the joy of the crew. Until recently, the manuals of the device, flight plans and others occupied bulky notebooks and books, around 16 kilos, with the discomfort that this implies for the staff.

Fortunately, the iPad has brought savings in time, space and without doubt, speed and convenience when it comes to operating. Meteorological warnings can be consulted quickly , without having to handle photocopies, in addition to having these parts updated in real time. Checklists, specific weather applications, flight record diaries, data recording, all this and more fit in the iPad.


The airline British Airways introduced the iPad as an element of work five years ago , and in fact it seems that all are advantages. For example, an application is responsible for supervising the refueling work, so that it is not necessary for someone from the crew to go down to the platform to sign the operation, or for the operator to go inside the aircraft smelling of kerosene.

Also, the crew can take the flight plans on the iPad , quickly find an alternative airport if an emergency occurs. In British Airways the maps are in PDF format, in such a way that they can write indications about the characteristics of a track, if there is an incident that should be taken into account or if it is convenient to carry out a specific specific maneuver.

And the future looks promising, when the maps are more dynamic and the airplane systems communicate automatically with the iPad, in such a way that it is easier to trace a specific route or avoid turbulence . The tablet of Apple is therefore the demonstration of how something can be integrated outside a field that in principle has nothing to do.
