Jul 10th 2009 2:41PM I can see I'm not original in expecting that it's all a dream/government experiment/hallucination, but yes, that's the right ending. With a little twist at the end like something from the island still being there, and of course some relevant numbers.
Feb 24th 2009 11:43PM I agree with Brian that that's a great answer, and although my company provides manuals and charts per airplane as Jens suggests, I can guess why yours doesn't.
Whether the books belong to the airplane or the pilot, it is still the pilot who is responsible for having them all there and up to date. It is a lot of work ensuring that all the proper pages are inserted in the manuals and if a system were in place effective enough to ensure that EVERY airplane ALWAYS had the right Jepps, the cost savings of not issuing manuals per pilot would be lost in delays incurred while the person responsible made sure an airplane didn't leave the gate without current manuals. Where would you have the updates delivered to? Could you guarantee that every airplane in the fleet would get to that base before the charts on board expired?
