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….
