What exactly is an electronic flightbag?
Are all of your Jepps in a laptop computer? other flight manuals?
How do you access it during flight? on an approach?
Do you still have to carry any paper charts?
Is it used for weight and balance?

Thanks for the info

We use two Fujitsu 4000 tablet PC's as EFB's. Each has Jeppview/FlightDeck installed on it.

We still subscribe to paper enroute charts and probably will indefinitely. But we no longer get paper approach charts.

We have world wide coverage. We get revisions every two weeks on CD, or you can update online, if you have a broadband connection, in a matter of minutes.

Think about it....charts for the entire world, always current, easy to find, and updating the entire world takes a few minute every couple of weeks.

Here's a link for the EFB supplier we use:

Edit:

Although we still do carry the original paper AFM on board, we also have Gulfstream's Crew Reference Library loaded on the EFB's. It contains the AFM, AOM, MEL, etc. etc. etc. It's easy to find any info you need using a Adobe Acrobat search.
