I am not so sure. Many airlines are going/have gone paperless for their pilot crews. I think Southwest,, JetBlue, & American are already paperless & either use notebooks, tablets or netbooks. My airline has over 12.000 pilots and we have about 50-100 pilots working w/pads now as a test (I don't know which brand). These pads have all our manuals, our Jeppesen Approach plates, maps, etc.
