JetBlue to Equip Pilots With Custom iPads and 2 Other Hot Stocks to Follow
JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ:JBLU): Current price $6.25
Once the Federal Aviation Administration approves, the carrier will equip all its pilots with custom-equipped iPads on-board, replacing the heavier paper manuals during flight phases, thus lowering weight on the planes, saving fuel and printing costs. Plus, pilots will gain real-time capabilities in the cockpit with advanced tech support. After running a trial phase over several months by giving iPads to 60 pilots, JetBlue handed fourth-generation 16-gigabyte Wi-Fi compatible iPads to some 2,500 pilots.
