Quite so. I would hope that there have been insufficient accidents for the AAIB to come to any statistically meaningful conclusions but I wonder if - on balance - the use of modern electronics such as ipads adds to, or detracts from, general aviation safety.

Whatever became of maps strapped to legs? And how long will it be before getting an Instrument Rating requires the demonstration of competence with an ipad?
