If there is a bright spot in aviation, it has to be avionics, where development of new technologies is still accelerating.

The most fascinating change during the past year has been how consumer electronics in the form of Apple’s game-changing iPad have upended the avionics industry. Pilots are swapping their traditional electronic flight bags (EFBs) for iPads loaded with charts, moving-map displays and even airborne XM weather and synthetic vision.
