Going overboard with paperwork

There is a lot of information that goes on an airline dispatch release. Ours are electronically transmitted to our EFB automatically at least one hour prior to departure, but I often see the Delta guys print out their releases at the gate and they look about 20+ pages long. Of course we all fly a little longer and further than Chuck does with his Cessna 172.

I’m getting the feeling he might be exaggerating just a tiny bit. It is funny, he was all about getting a glass “mission board” to write down all his upcoming flights, yet seems very resistant to a post-it note.
He is right in one aspect though. Even though most of t is digital now, ever since I have started flying, aviation has always been heading towards ‘more’ paperwork every year, and never less….

    An aircraft is not airworthy until the weight of the paperwork exceeds the weight of the aircraft.

    — The FAA (Probably)

    If there’s no serial number I don’t have to document it right?
