Seminar: iPad Takes Flight! ADVANCED.

Topic - Mastering the iPad for use in-flight and for Aeronautical Decision Making - the need for proficiency, the need for speed

This seminar focuses on why and how to master the use of the iPad in-flight. Specific topics to be covered will include using iPad apps as a backup, to improve situational awareness, to support quality and speed of in-flight decision making, and to help in an emergency. Also discussed will be how to make the iPad “Cockpit Ready” so that it is secured, viewable and operable in-flight.

You have been using your iPad for a while, but have you mastered it? Are you proficient in its use in-flight? We will look to answer questions like:

What does it look like when you have mastered using the iPad in-flight?

What capabilities will you then have that you didn't have before?

Why is this important?

How do you become proficient and master the use of the iPad?

Is your iPad "Cockpit Ready?"

Goal - Rate your proficiency; define a path to achieve proficiency

The goal of this seminar is to expose you to what it looks like to be profient using the iPad in-flight, not to become proficient. You will then be able to rate your skills and define a path to acheive proficiency.
