    Airplane Mode disables tethering for networks. Always make sure to have it on if your on an airplane and its on. Otherwise, keep it off. In non-computer "nerd" terms, it disables WiFi. Without WiFi, FaceTime is screwed.

    Airplane mode shuts off any wireless communications that the Ipad is capable of, If you have a 3G enabled Ipad then it stops it trying to look for a 3G connection. You'd probably be alright with it off anyway, but the idea is that it stops interference for the aeroplane's communications, I don't know whether this is actually true or not though.

    Airplane mode is need to enable when you're in the airplane. When airplane is taking off or down, all electronics device should be turn off. Instead of turning off your iPad, switch it to airplane mode for faster deactivation. If there is signal or wifi available in airplane you can use Facetime.

    airplane mode is a feature that turns off all signals generated from the ipad so as to not disrupt any frequencies used in navigating and such on a flight

    Airplane mode disables all wireless communication (wifi / 3G / ...)

    Basically it removes the phone / online functions from your iPad so you can play games without crashing the plane.
