FlightAware > Squawks iPads to Replace Paper Reference Manuals in All AA CockpitsThe FAA has approved American Airlines to be the first commercial airline to have its pilots use iPads in "all phases of flight," rather than the 35lb paper reference manuals they're used to. Based on current fuel prices, The Next Web estimates that this will save the airline some $1.2M annually, across all of its aircraft. This month, AA's 777 fleet will be the first to get the technological upgrade; by the end of this year, all fleet types are expected to have approval for the switch and the paper manuals will cease to be revised.
