Leaders in the aviation iPad revolution will meet during EAA AirVenture to discuss the future of tablet computers in general aviation.
Executives from ForeFlight, Garmin, Hilton Software, Jeppesen, MyGoFlight, and others are scheduled to take part in a forum on Wednesday, July 31, at 1 p.m. in Pavilion 6.
The roundtable gives pilots an opportunity to hear directly from the people at the center of one of the biggest changes in decades in the way pilots plan and make their trips. Those who attend will be able to ask questions of panelists directly.

The AOPA National Aviation Community Center hosted Paws and Planes, an event that showed kids flying for others – including our four-footed friends – can be rewarding and fun.
Pilots focus on preheating the engine during cold weather, but what about the cockpit? More than 30 percent of an aircraft's value is often tied up in the panel.
J. Reid Garrison, an airshow performer and formation pilot who has been part of the story line at the major aviation events, including Sun 'n Fun and EAA AirVenture, across the years, was recently inducted into the South Carolina Aviation Hall of Fame.
