iPads arrived for helicopter flight students in the Guidance Aviation flight training program. These iPads will be used in the cockpit as an electronic information management device. Referred to as Electronic Flight Bags, or EFBs, the iPads contain geo-referenced navigational charts and ADS-B traffic avoidance data.
The helicopter flight students will also be using their iPads to view the high definition course training videos that Guidance Aviation has produced. Guidance is one of the few helicopter pilot schools in the country to have these videos approved by the FAA as a portion of ground school. Accessible 24-hours per day, students can now learn at a time and pace that works for them.
