I have a simple question to ask of airline flight crews. In general aviation the pilots generally update the aircraft's Jep books. However, I work with a woman who was a UA FA for over 25 years and she told me that they were the ones who would insert the updates. I was a little suprised that this responsibility would be given to non-pilot personel. While it isn't exactly brain surgery, I would suspect that pilots would make less mistakes than FA's and I also believe that pilots should update to maintain familiarity.
I think that she may have also mentioned that this responsibility is given to the FAs in the FARs. Is that true?
Of course, most new aircraft have computers that are just updated by disk, but I know that there are still alot of older ones that must use the Jep binders.
