"No Vote Left Behind"
I'll do some asking around, but someone told me the Alaska Pilots have a requirement to show up for duty with 50% or better battery life remaining, and do not have to have power/charging capabilities... Can anyone confirm or deny that?
A Colgan check airman told me a lot of folks over there are downloading the charts on their own and using their iPads in flight. They still have to lug the paper around, they just never actually dig it out of the bag (it'd be funny if they just stow their flight kits in the closet). I suppose there's a slight gain in convenience to be gained there in exchanged for a decrease in legality.
