It works great as a protective portfolio case for everyday business, and easily converts to a kneeboard for flight ops. The firm but padded exterior offers decent protection for the iPad, and the magnetic clasp makes it all the better. Worth the investment - Very happy!April 23, 2018Purchased

3 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesWork in ProgressRusty pilot with new technology. I bought it for the Kneeboard using a 10.5” IPad. Video on this site is not for the Folio C Kneeboard. Appears to be well put together. Very disappointed there is no pen /pencil/stylus holder. Another object to get loose in the cockpit. Apple Stylus has no clip on it and same for several other cheapy stylus pens. Would echo another remark that since you Cannot close the writing board on the IPad screen, put magnets also on the outside cover. Existing holding strength on cover is nil. 10.5” iPad fits fine even when turning to horizontal. Still struggling to find optimal knee pad orientation if you don’t want to use cover/writing tablet (fold back the cover underneath the IPad I guess) and the knee strap.

To reattach it is nearly impossible with one hand.January 15, 2018Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesThe best of iPad and Notepad worldsThis is my third and final purchase of an iPad kneeboard. My first was all metal and difficult to keep on my knee. The second had no clipboard for writing on paper, which is a must for IFR flying. This one allows for versatile iPad mounting while allowing for the clipboard to be attached (via magnet) to either the inner flap or the external cover, if closed.December 28, 2017Purchased

7 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesJust what I was looking forI have been through several knee boards over the last couple of years. I wanted something for my ipad mini, as well as a writing surface. For me, this is the perfect solution. It's pretty heavy and seems like it should last for years. I like the magnetic clipboard and how it can be removed or attached to the outside. I haven't encountered the magnets not being strong enough.The ipad can rotate 360 degrees so you can rotate it accordingly to have the clipboard on either side of your lap. My biggest concern was there being no pen holder. I found the solution to this by accident. The 'Wings Stylus Pen' is magnetic, and it sticks to the magnetic latch that keeps the knee board shut. It is on the more expensive side, but like I've always said, "You get what you pay for".Wings Stylus Pen held by the magnet.September 10, 2017
- Question and Answer
Browse 10 questions Browse 10 questions and 12 answersDoes this fit the IPAD 2?Compatible with IPAD Air 2 in Otterbox case?BEST ANSWER: Hi Ed, this is a great kneeboard but it will definitely not work with any case. it fits the iPad VERY tightly and securely. Also, something to note is that the clipboard does not work well with the iPad. The metal clip protrudes around a half inch from the board (plus the thickness of the notepad). The two protrusions directly contact the iPad screen when closed and, I feel, will scratch or crack the screen in time. I keep them separately in a backpack and place the clipboard in place once opened and ready for use. ChrisDoes this fit the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro? What option do I select since that is not one of the options.BEST ANSWER: iPad with 10" Screen
The iPad Air 1-2, iPad 2017, and the newest 9.7" Pro will all fit in the same kneeboard. Some Android tablets with similar dimensions will work too. This kneeboard is also compatible with the New iPad Pro 10.5" but it is a snug fit.Is this a good case for a IFR student in a part 141 program?BEST ANSWER: Its a good case, but have a couple challenges. 1) the magnets aren't strong enough to hold the clipboard so it tends to fall off (I use binder clips to hold it), 2) have to keep the clipboard on the outside when closing the cover or it will scratch the ipad, 3) its big and bulky in an archer / arrowWill it hold the 12” iPad?BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is an option for the 12.9 iPad.Does the quick reference chart come with the case?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is included.I have two questions. 1.Does it fit well for iPad Pro 9.5 2.
