Is there any way to save videos in the hdd instead of streaming them from the internet on xbmc in the iPad??, I have installed some video add-ons and I would like to download some videos to watch on the airplane while there is no internet.

Any help??

Yep. Your options include:

SSH
iFile (search Cydia)
Any normal App Store app that can save misc files (Air Sharing, iCab, Dropbox, etc) + AppLinks (Cydia)
iFunBox or iPhone Explorer

I've been meaning to write up a nice tutorial about the different ways to do this, but here's some threads where people were asking the same thing to hold you over:
