    The US Air Force’s Air Mobility Command spokesperson has told James Rogers of The Street, via AppleInsider, that using iPads instead of bulky flight manuals will save the US Air Force $750,000 on fuel alone, and will save a further $5 million per year in printing costs. In total this would come to a saving of $5.7 million annually, adding up to a saving of over $50 million in the next 10 years according to Major Brian Moritz, manager of AMC’s electronic flight back program.

    [FONT=&amp]AppleInsider says that Rogers also got to see the iPad in action in the US Air Force up close and personal when he was embedded with the force recently, so he knows what he’s talking about. Rogers said that using iPads instead of paper manuals would reduce the weight carried by a C-5 aircraft by around 490 pounds. [/FONT]
