Mokulele Airlines has been granted FAA approval to use Electronic Flight Bag-equipped iPads in lieu of paper on the flight deck. The 1.5 lb. iPad will replace approximately 15 lbs. of paper on each of the carrier’s Caravans and is expected to save approximately 1,400 gallons of fuel each year. It is the first Hawaii-based airline to have FAA approval to use of iPads in all phases of flight. The tablet replaces logbooks, manuals and charts; it also displays satellite weather.
