    Maj. Brian Ashford displays the difference between pilots carrying their regularly issued map packs weighing in at nearly 40 pounds versus the 1.33-pound iPad, which holds the same amount of maps. AH-1W pilots have been using the iPad to quickly access maps and other data they can use to ensure precision strikes are targeted at enemy positions. Ashford is the operations officer for Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 267.
