Who still uses paper maps? Apparently airplane pilots do. But if this new FAA ruling spreads through the industry, they may not use 'em for much longer.
It was announced today that the Federal Aviation Administration has approved iPads for pilots to use for cockpit documentation like maps and flight charts. At first, only pilots for charter company Executive Jet Management will be allowed to make the switch, but we're sure commercial pilots will get gadget envy and request that they be allowed to crossover, too.
