I am a pilot and let me tell you Ipads are a life saver i bought one only for the purpose of flight planning which means i have aeronautical charts on there it gives me my weather reports and for pilots who fly small planes with out sophisticated navigation instruments it can be used as an FAA approved GPS. it is making the flying world a whole lot safer and could even be used for primary flight controls.

Your username makes me nervous about you being a pilot.
#120 to #119 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
someone finally caught that. im a helicopter mechanic and gunner as well
User avatar #121 to #120 - vatra ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
Nice, helicopter mechanic sounds much more difficult than standard mechanics.
#122 to #121 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
FAA requires you use the maintenance manual and its just a big picture book a 5 year old could do it
User avatar #124 to #122 - vatra ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
Well damn, maybe I should get into that.
#126 to #124 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
you can make really good money as well just be compitent with tools and general mechanics
User avatar #127 to #126 - vatra ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
I'm already pretty good with general mechanics, but thus far it has only been used to avoid paying a small fortune for car tune ups/repairs.

thats how i started small aircraft engines are just like aircooled beetle engines get yourself one and familiarize yourself thats what i did and jets are just turbo chargers so maybe find yourself a junk yard turbo you can turn them into jet engines fairley easily plus its just fun
User avatar #131 to #129 - vatra ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
Fair enough! I might just do that in a year or so.
#132 to #131 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
theres a lot of community colleges or technical schools that get you certified for fairly cheap you will need an airframe and powerplant certificate good luck
User avatar #135 to #132 - vatra ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
Thanks mate, I just need to save up enough money to even attempt the first step, you know? haha.
#137 to #135 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
join the military they pay you to get certified
User avatar #139 to #137 - vatra ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
I have been intending to do that soon.
#140 to #139 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
better now than later the gov. is cutting the military drastically they mat stop hiring
User avatar #141 to #140 - vatra ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
Very true, I just want to finish getting my associate degree first, plus I'm already certified as an EMT, so I should get more options than most once i join.
#144 to #141 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
for sure go army by the way
User avatar #147 to #144 - vatra ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
I'm not sure what branch I'll go into yet, probably see which options I like most after taking the test.
#150 to #147 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]

User avatar #152 to #150 - vatra ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]

User avatar #171 to #152 - fuelnfire ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
Take it from someone who was in the Corps and Navy. Go army, unless you have a wild streak.

Oh god I can see the apple propaganda now... "Fly you plane with an iPad!" Until the app crashes and everyone dies
#116 to #114 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
ipads will never have control over a plane but to be used as GPS the FAA requires an antenna be mounted to the outside of the plane to keep it from losing service
User avatar #113 to #111 - twatmissile (01/27/2013) [-]

#115 to #113 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
