    [/FONT][FONT=&amp]AppleInsider writes today that the JetBlue airline has announced on its official blog that its pilots will now be using iPads in the cockpit. According to the report, JetBlue says that it intends to train its pilots to use three “core” iPad apps to help them both before and during a flight. The first is a real-time weather app, the second helps with pre-flight planning, and the third has digital airport and aircraft charts. AppleInsider says that the pilots employed by the company will also have the benefit of super-fast satellite Wi-Fi, thanks to LiveTV, which JetBlue claims will be the fastest connection that you can get in the air.

    [FONT=&amp]As AppleInsider notes, this latest news from JetBlue comes hot on the heels of rival airline American Airlines announcing that it will be deploying over 8,000 iPads on its network of planes. [/FONT]

    Most likely closed-circuit privately owned ones specifically for JetBlue. That way it prevents the whole "accident because of hackers" scenario
