February 3 (Wed) 7:00pm iPads in the Cockpit

Event Date: 
Wednesday, February 3, 2016 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

iPads are invading the cockpit! Is this a good thing or a distraction?

The power and flexibility of the iPad make it the ideal electronic flight deck. Some of us have already experienced the ease of electronic charts over paper charts. On a multi-state journey, it’s hard to beat the ability to zoom and scan rapidly. And it can be a lot lighter to take an iPad than several A/FDs, E6Bs, charts, and approach plate catalogs.

This seminar will cover some of the uses of the Apple iPad as an electronic flight deck. Pilots are invited to participate by contacting the speaker in advance to describe what application they would like to share with the group. A projector with an iPad connector will be available to share the iPad’s screen with the group at large.

Flight planning, navigation, weather, airport information, and instrument procedures. Which uses are a good idea, and which can get you into trouble? Join us for a lively discussion of the latest in iPad applications and technology.
