Seminar Leader: Charles Schneider


Charlie is an instrument rated pilot and staunch advocate of pilots using advanced technology in-flight. He has always flown with an EFB starting with the use of heavy and expensive laptop computers. When the iPad became available, Charlie saw that as an opportunity to bring low-cost, securable, easy to use devices such as an iPad to all pilots to make flying safer, simpler, and more fun. His popular seminar series, iPad Takes Flight!, has been given to thousands of pilots over the years.
