The ultimate in-flight organizer

Trying to keep charts, timers, notes, calculators, and cables organized in the cockpit can be a daunting task. Sporty’s Tri-Fold Kneeboard has a spot for everything. The solid clipboard is great for copying clearances and doubles as a quick reference tool.

Features:
  • Sturdy clipboard
  • One zippered storage compartment
  • Two mesh pockets 
  • Clear chart pocket
  • Two pen loops
  • Padded back
  • Elastic strap

Slots on both sides of the clipboard allow you to fold the sides underneath and still use the knee strap.

When closed, the front of the kneeboard has a slot for a chart and an ID holder. The elastic knee strap wraps around the front of the kneeboard to keep it closed.

Clipboard is printed with quick reference placard information, including basic VFR weather minimums, mandatory IFR reports, airport traffic light signals, flight plan sequence, ICAO phonetic alphabet with Morse Code, transponder codes, emergency engine checklist and cruising altitudes.

Measures 11.5” x 20” open; 11.5” x 7” closed.

Tri-fold too long
Pilot knee board has lots of space and places to keep things, but it is much too long. I am averaged sized for 5'11 and it covers the length from just above knee to almost my waist. It is quite cumbersome to fly with. It appears to be well made, priced well and has room for items, but does not work for me.

Simply too long
I am 5'9 and this knee board, while of nice quality, is simply too long. It's actually slightly longer than a folded up sectional. If it was about an inch shorter it would make a huge difference.

Side pocket a little wide for me
Personally i cannot have the side pockets open as my leg is not thick enough for that to be comfortable, I guess it would be good for many but I keep the sides folded under.

The kneeboard works very well, but is quite large. The size occasionally interferes with yoke inputs.

The Flight Gear HP Tri-Fold Kneeboard was everything I expected. It's comfortable, has a place for everything I need at hand, and is well made. The only issue I had is that it slightly interferes with full control yoke travel with my preferred seat position in a Cessna 172.

Nice but bulky
It is everything I expected except it is much longer than desired. It is as long as my thigh and would be better if it was about 2-3 inches shorter.

Comfortable, Adaptable
Not only is it comfortable, the side flaps can be folded back easily when not in use without getting in the way of the straps.

Easy use and quality
Very simple... Get one, and get organized. Saw a cockpit last week that looked like a plumbers dashboard, between the business cards all over, piles of paperwork, and empty water bottles and old charts the pilot could have used one of these as well as a clue about safety.

Can you fit a Ipad in any of the pockets?
A shopper on Jan 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, you can't fit an iPad mini in either side pocket. There are 2 side pockets on the left and one bigger pocket on the right. But the right one is too narrow for the iPad. The kneeboard is awesome, though. It's HUGE and you can put the iPad mini inside when you fold it up and put it into your flight bag. It's really good quality of a product as well.
Could I fit a 6.25" x 10.25" folded chart in the chart pocket? Would an E6B fit in the zipped storage pocket? Thank you
Adam A on Nov 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Fit the folded chart? Yes but willl protrude out about an inch once you strap it to you leg. My E6B fits in the zippered pocket with very little room to spare
how long are the leg straps? the straps on the flyboys kneeboard are way too short for my football player legs!
A shopper on Dec 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The straps are 8 1/2 inches on each side and stretch to 13 inches on each side.
