The first article discusses American Airlines and their new technology integration. With newly granted FAA approval, the hope is for pilots to replace their thick flight manuals with brand-new iPads. Though pilots were first granted approval to use iPads in the cockpit in 2011, this news tidbit shows that American is serious about rolling them out for both pilots and flight attendants alike by the end of 2013. The hope is to reduce paper (and believe me, pilot's logs and manuals have plenty to spare) and provide pilots/passengers with the most updated weather and airport information.
