SID'S / STAR'S - Paper or Digital

Recommended Posts

I've been printing out many SID'S, STAR'S and approach plates, but I'm thinking of buying a small 7" tablet and downloading all the .pdf files. Anyone else going paperless, and is it worth it?

The trees are only grown to serve the paper industry. It's not like you're cutting down virgin rainforest.Bit like beef cattle really. Just another cash crop....So print those plates! LOL.gifSeriously, I'd love a SID/STAR app for my HTC phone. Might be a bit hard on the old mince pies though..Ian

"Never mind the trees", An EFB is a lot more practical too, especially since all plates get automatically updated with a single AIRAC cycle. Guess that's why the Boeing and Airbus are including them in their newer aircraft.Cheers,- jahman.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I'll give the EFB demo a try, and see how that goes.

I've been paperless for years - I have multiple monitors and multiple computers and the last thing I need is more paper around the house... there are many sources for pdfs of approach charts and enroute charts in the US and abroad. Most are free and those that aren't, or are difficult to obtain, are mostly available from software like Navigraph's nDac application. nDac has its limitations but is convenient and generally adequate within its limits. I have the Aviasoft EFB, but am only moderately impressed with it since it uses the Navigraph data which is frequently incorrect. I much prefer the official plates and charts where obtainable.DJ

I'm using pdfs only. I keep them on my secondary monitor. There's also a freeware gauge for displaying PDFs in the sim out there, http://code.google.c...ki/PDFKneeboard
Johan, thanks for the tip about the PDF Kneeboard. I just installed this freeware gauge, and it's actually perfect for what I was looking for. I may still give the EFB program a look, but this gauge works far better than I imagined.

7ich display could be to small seeing difficult, complex plates. I am using 10inch for navigation and flight plan and I am very pleased with it.

Providing they're in pdf format, you have one already on the HTC via the standard pdf reader...

I've got all my charts online (US and some on vatsim charts) via s second hand (and I mean old school) PC connected to a small LCD monitor. The PC was free and the monitor about 180 bucks, I use Synergy+ to network the PC to my main PC so I can share keyboard and mouse input via a single kb/mouse.

I do that too. Couldn't manage now without Synery! Use it ALL the time, not just in FSX
