    Electronic flight bags?

    Have the iPads become pretty standard in civil aviation for charts, etc?

    Not really, not yet anyway. My company just got them, and it is WONDERFUL. Mostly because a full US ship-set of JEPPS takes up all the room in your kit bag, and lugging them around does a number on the back over the years. Plus the update is a tap of the screen vs. hours pulling and inserting onion skin sheets of paper on your days off.

    I don't know the exact numbers, but I'd say it is well less than 25% of 121 carriers are EFB.

    A bunch of GA guys use ipads and some flight planning companies like ARINC even have an app for their website. It's becoming more widely used as time goes on, at least with GA.

    At LAF it is very, very common at both the university and Lafayette Aviation. Not too many people are carrying around pounds and pounds of charts anymore.

    Alaska/Horizon are fully Class 2 EFB, and United should be as well if I'm not mistaken...almost all new airliners are being shipped with Class 3 EFBs as part of the avionics suites.

    I know a lot of 91 & 135 operators are using EFBs. JeppView is nice if you combine it with ForeFlight weather.
