I'm sure it's alot better than a map strapped to your leg, but the batteries never run out with the map.

AA started issuing them when they realized they could save fuel by the pilots not having such heavy bags

“It's projected that the use of the iPad as an electronic flight bag will save American Airlines 400,000 gallons of gas, or $1.2 million worth of fuel, every year. The carrier has also eliminated 24 million pages of paper documents.”

In a small aircraft, with the right app, it is like google maps in the sky. I assume it would be the same on a commercial flight but have tried it.


There a lot of "highways" and air spaces which a pilot needs to be aware of and it pinpoints your location. That is way better than looking at a paper flight map. It will also show traffic with aircraft type, heading and altitude that is sometime is hard to see with the naked eye. Does other cool stuff too...

You do need a back up nav system
This is good advice
