Pilots Will Take Surface Tablets To The Skies
Delta’s getting on board with tablet technology. The company announced that it will be replacing the reference manuals and maps used by their pilot’s with Microsoft’s Surface 2 tablets, allowing them real-time access to tools and resources. It’s all part of an effort to ditch lengthy paper manuals and flight charts and will save the company about $13 million annually.
