United on Tuesday said it is converting its flight decks to be completely paperless and will deploy 11,000 iPads to all United and Continental pilots.
The iPads will replace paper flight manuals and things like aeronautical navigational charts, which will now be done through an iPad app. Pilots began receiving the iPads earlier this month — all pilots will have the device by the end of the year.
