My two cents/pesos/pence/lira, etc...

I 've personally been using an issue iPad 2 for about three weeks as a company standardized EFB. Having used paper for decades, I still have some approach chart backups, but the iPad has been flawless. We aren't the first to use this. Major airlines and corporate flying departments have been using the FAA and company approved concept for many combined hours. I think its a good thing.

As far as mounting, I just lay it on my flight kit like a Jepp binder.

We're using Foreflight, Jepp View and Goodreader primarily. Amazing capability with Skype, FltPlan.com, ADDS, mapping, etc. in one small, lightweight package.

Legal, efficient, effective, lightweight and capable. All good.
