Delta Selects MS Surface 2 Over iPad

Delta Selects MS Surface 2 Over iPad

Delta Airlines Inc. selects Microsoft Surface 2 over the iPad. Delta will be supplying all of its 11,000 pilots the Microsoft Surface 2 which will run Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 RT (Enterprise) OS. Microsoft Surface 2 will launch October 22.

Delta will replace the 38 lb flight bag that is used for flights logs, charts, and manuals on each flight, for Microsoft’s Surface 2. The transition to Microsoft Surface 2 will reduce weight which will cut fuel expense and also, the occasional errors and time-consuming searches by pilots.

Captain Steve Dickson, Delta’s Flight Operation SVP released the following statement, “Delta’s electronic flight bag running on Surface 2 continues the technological strides Delta has been making to give our crews the best tools to keep them flying safely and efficiently. This intuitive device puts key information at their fingertips right when they need it. By eliminating paper, we’ll reduce clutter and minimize time spent looking for flight information allowing our pilots the opportunity for greater situational awareness in the air and on the ground.

Microsoft released the following statement, “Device roll out to pilots flying the Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 fleets will start later this year and all Delta cockpits are projected to be paperless by the end of 2014.”
