Complete electronic flight bags have been under development since 2010; however, U.S. Air Force personnel like Capt. Brett Pierson, USAF, have been using tablets as early as 2011 during preflight checks aboard a KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft bound for refueling missions in Afghanistan.

All Air Mobility Command wings are now approved to use electronic flight bags. The portable electronic devices consolidate nearly 120 pounds of paper products into a single tablet and will save the command nearly $3.8 million annually.

The tablet contains electronic flight information publications such as navigational charts and digital publications, including Air Force instructions and technical orders.
