    I have cellular because it's not dedicated to one plane, and I can use it anywhere. Lot's of places you can't pick up wifi, even on the flight line.

    Yes absolutely 100000% I would NOT recommend a WiFi only iPad for flying. There have been so many times I have needed the cellular data when checking weather or filing flight plans away from WiFi. Also, the cellular iPad has built in GPS that will always track your location whether you actually have a cellular data plan active for the iPad. I just have my iPad on a shared data plan with my phone.

    Depending on what you’re flying, and where you’re flying: the data signal may not work. However, the data + WiFi iPads have internal GPS which helps with taxi charts, en route, etc. If you buy a WiFi only iPad, it still works but needs a GPS source To locate yourself on the charts.

    If you go WiFi only, research the Stratux (with an X). It is a DIY ADS-B receiver that can have GPS, and free weather information on most EFB apps. You can get traffic, weather, METAR, PIREPS, and more through it

    This is a good option, but tethering is a drain on the phone's battery. A cellular iPad Pro might be a better choice in this particular application because of battery life.

    Pretty sure the dude on the right was a classmate of mine at VT. He's about at that phase in the Navy pipeline.

    Another point worth making when buying an iPad. If you don't have a power outlet in your A/C, then purchase a USB battery pack. The battery on an iPad mini is about 5,000mAh, so consider a 10,000mAh battery pack or larger. They are not very large, or expensive but come in handy when flying.

    Yeah, I keep one in my bag but have never used it. It’s nice to have backup power.

    Only because "Iron Eagle" sucked so much ass even Lou Gossett Jr. and a Queen soundtrack couldn't save it.

    Feel like I'll be doing the old Southwest triangle tomorrow. Supposed to fly from Addison to Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin, College Station, Fort Worth, then back to Addison. Hope the weather will be better than it was today!

    Lots of severe turbulence reports going into Austin tonight. Tomorrow looks like it should be nicer though. Fingers crossed!
