[Avionics Today 12-19-2014] Europe’s largest regional airline, the United Kingdom-based Flybe, has achieved paperless operational authorization from the U.K. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Flybe has integrated Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro on iPad as their Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) solution fleet-wide, thus allowing the carrier to gain paperless authorization status.

The use of digital flight information allows airlines to operate more efficiently by eliminating paper content on the ground and in the air, reducing weight and fuel. Real-time, data driven flight information is displayed on iPad per the preference of Flybe pilots and FliteDeck Pro aims to reduce flight preparation time and pilot workload.
