Britannia Airways uses IBM in cockpit
Posted on 2-Feb-2003 13:49 | Filed under: News



Britannia Airways equipped all its aircrafts with IBM Thinkpads. They reckon they can reduce in-flight weight by removing 40 pounds of paper manuals the pilots have with them.

The Thinkpads are wireless capable, what is something the American FAA (Federal Aviation Authority) deems not safe. But the Civil Authority in UK said the Thinkpads are safe.
