Are iPads Legal in the Cockpit?
A client of mine recently asked me if the FAA restricted the use of iPads and iPhones in the cockpit of his private aircraft. iPads and other tablets are so prevalent in today’s cockpits,
that many of us may assume they have the FAA’s seal of approval. (we will discuss iPhones in another post) After all, any visit to Sporty’s Pilot Shop will turn up dozens of accessories and apps designed for using your iPad in the cockpits of your aircraft. However, the answer may not be so simple.
