United has begun replacing its pilot-issued flight decks with iPads. By the end of the year all 11,000 United and Continental pilots will have their own iPads instead of the 38 pounds of paper operating manuals, navigation charts, reference handbooks, flight checklists, logbooks and weather information that is carried in their flight bags.
United is the first airline to go completely paperless with its flight decks. The company says the change will save 16 million sheets of paper and 326,000 gallons of jet fuel a year.
