Air Canada Express pilots and crews use iPads

Here is an excerpt from Toronto Star “Plane, check. iPad, check“,

“When Captain Carl Feldcamp takes off from the Toronto island airport on the inaugural Air Canada Express flight to Montreal this morning, he’ll be depending on his iPad. […]

Instead of lugging around manuals filled with rules and regulations, Feldcamp taps on iPad, checking everything from flight plans to weather radar pictures.

“You don’t have to carry binders full of charts. All of the charts in the whole world are right in here. And you don’t have paperwork,” said Feldcamp. “We’ve had them for a few weeks. It’s awesome.”

On the ground, the pilots can link up to head office with instant updates and information and even hold Skype conversations on Bluetooth equipment. But once in the air, they turn off wireless connection like other passengers, and use information that has already been downloaded.”
