Flexjet submitted initial paperwork to the FAA this week seeking approval for the fractional provider’s pilots to use the iPad 2 for viewing navigational charts, aircraft publications and other flight-related documents during flight operations. It expects to complete the formal application and operations inspection review by year-end, which would then allow an Interim Authorization to Use an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) early next year. Full authorization to use iPad-based EFBs would likely follow in mid-2012, Flexjet said.
