After months and months and perhaps even years of rumours and speculation it's been announced. Each flight deck crew to be issued with an iPad allowing to check in for flights, conduct briefings etc. the CSD's already have them so a strong case this will transpire soon. :)

Translated from German (pls correct if wrong):
Daughter : “Dad, how do you are you doing with yournew I-Pad you received for your birthday ?”
Father : “Good”
Daughter : “And the applications ?”
Father : “applications ?”

I would say this more rumor than fact. := It is true, flight crews are using ipads in the cockpit, but those pilots purchase their own. Qr did not issue any ipads.
If you have some concrete facts to debunk my statement, by all means, please do share.:E

April fools, me thinks?
I initially had this thought, but the post is dated 02 Apr
Which ipad? the new ipad or ipad 2?
What difference does it make? Unless there is evidence to support the ipad rumor, it just that, a RUMOR!:rolleyes: Don't feed this nonsense.

Although true that it's in a newsletter, just keep in mind that it is a Training Newsletter, so not available to everyone.

Big deal. TCX pilots have had iPad2's since last year, and Qatar has somewhat bigger resources than TCX! Who would want to work for QR anyway. (Or TCX for that matter)
