American Airlines ahorraría $1.2 Millones Usando iPads Y No Manifestos de Pape

American Airlines comenzó a probar en el dia de ayer el uso de iPads en las cabinas de sus pilotos en vez de voluminosos manifestos escritos en papel que contienen un peso total de hasta 35 libras. Esto en 1 esfuerzo de ahorrar alrededor de US$1.2 millones de dolares al año en combustible de acuerdo con MarketWatch.

Las bolsas de los pilotos que contienen el manifesto e información sobre la navegación del avión tipicamente pesan unas 32 libras o mas. Las iPads estan siendo probadas en dos diferentes vuelos con salida desde Los Angeles a Tokyo y Shanghai, respectivamente.

La Administración Federal de Aviación ha aprobado el uso de las iPAds en todas las fases del vuelo, permitiendo por primera vez el uso de dispositivos electronicos durante el despegue y el aterrizaje.

Este anunció resalta luego de que se ha confirmado de que Alaska Airlines comenzaría similarmente a suministrar sus pilotos con iPads.

Las iPads de 1.5 libras reemplazarían las 25-35 libras de manuales de papel que son requeridas para cada piloto durante un vuelo. Alaska Airlines espera comenzar a utilizarlas en todos sus vuelos para finales de este mes.

exactly what is the point of all this? Did you know that 6% of pilots and copilots have admitted that they have fallen asleep in a recently conducted survey in the US and Europe....??? And YES they are licensed to fly around carrying 100 souls with them... Now who wants to bet that even a few pilots will be more concentrated on high-scoring their Angry Birds rather than taking their "metal bird" to Rio (de Janeiro).....?

Hopefully this would change their $50 for extra baggage policy even though I doubt this will happen. In the bright side: Less fuel, less waste, less damage to the environment!

No matter what, it is destruction for pilots, and YES it is Extremely danger to use it during flights. Sometimes All iphone or ipad devices get frozen and unresponsive , this may put the lives of people on board in danger . ipad or any other electronic devices are not sophisticated to be trusted in this kind of situations. however it is 50-50 chance will they help or fail in critical moments. it is not that 99.9 % users rely on their iphone GPS which is controlled by US - Air-force Which is ok to trust.

I read in another article that there will always be a paper version of the manual on board as a precaution.
