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.

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