Delta to Equip Pilots With the Microsoft Surface 2 Tablet

Posted by · 10050 views · Translate
Delta Airlines has decided to equip its pilots with the Microsoft Surface 2 tablet; rather than the iPad or the Nokia 'Sirius' tablet, reports WindowsITPro.

"In less than two years, Delta cockpits will be paperless as we roll-out the Microsoft Surface 2 tablet running Windows 8.1 RT as our company-issued device," the airline alerted its employees recently. "The 757/767 fleet will be the first to make the transition with the 777, 747 and MD88 as fast followers. Look for an announcement from Delta and Microsoft in the coming days about our partnership on the initiative."

Notably, pilots can currently bring their own iPads for use on flights; however, that could also be changing. Delta reportedly wants "current iPad Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) users to transition to a company-issued device."

Microsoft just announced the Surface 2 tablet. More details on it can be found here.
