I wish it was a little more accommodating...

Not Recommended

I have a Shark keyboard/case for my iPad Mini 4 and the elastic straps can't hold the iPad in place. I hate to remove the iPad every time I fly with it, so I've been flying with my phone, instead.

OK - but I would not buy again

Not Recommended

This is a "in my opinion" review as a 'newbee' student. First, my iPad popped out of the elastic straps 2x on the first flight. I ended up throwing my iPad in the back seat as it was becoming more of a distraction, than an aid. Buy a yoke or window mount for your iPad. If you really want your iPad on your knee, get something with a plastic base that "locks it in." Second, you need to be able to write stuff down. you cant do that quickly on the ipad. I have replaced the iPad in the picture with a 5x8 pad of paper, but this would not have been my first choice for that either. A couple of office binder clips have made it usable though. Lastly, after looking at my instructors knee board, his has lots of things on it that you hope never to need, but would like to have handy if you ever did, printed on it. Things like the emergency comm distress frequencies, light gun meanings, etc. It also has wind speed adjusters, and that kind of thing in case you are not flying digitally for some reason (considering this is a iPad knee board holder.) I do like the pockets on the side. It could use a place for more pens (for when you drop yours on the floor.) It is comfortable for even a bigger guy and does appear reasonably well built.

Inexpensive solution

Recommended

Works great, didn't really have enough room in the cockpit for a mount so this was a good solution. Quaility is very good. Only issue is on my iPad 4 it covers the auto brightness sensor but not a big deal.

Well Worth the Price

Recommended

I have only had this kneeboard for a couple of weeks, but have found it very helpful in terms of being able to make use of Foreflight without having to reach for my iPad and balance it on my leg, all while continuing to fly the airplane. From that perspective, it helps me maintain a "clean cockpit" while flying safely. I recommend it for any pilot who uses Foreflight or similar applications on an iPad.

Good value product, simple design

Recommended

The Flight Gear HP iPad Kneeboard is a simple, durable Ipad mini kneeboard that does a great job for the money. The elastic corner holding straps work well and do not interfere with the Ipad mini buttons. This is a simple, efficient design without any unnecessary bells and whistles. I like it. It works.

Just what was needed

Recommended

I have used different holders for my IPad Air 2, so far this is the best for the aircraft that I am presently flying, Does not take up to mush space and yet easy to access. I would recommend this to anyone that has limited cockpit space

Will this secure the iPad during aerobatics? I'm looking for a sturdy iPad kneeboard that isn't bulky, will hold things in place during aerobatics, and won't pop off when my g-suit inflates.
A shopper on Dec 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's quite sturdy. The iPad won't be going anywhere even during hi-G turns.
The only issue for me is that the whole thing is quite bulky. I ended up swapping it out for the MyGoFlight kneeboard.
What size iPad with this accommodate?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are two options - one for the iPad Mini size (1-4), and one for iPad Air 1-2/iPad Pro 9.7".
Is it possible to rotate this to wear on the left leg?
A shopper on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is possible to rotate this to use on the left leg.
Will it work with the Apple Smart case?
Chris C on Dec 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The elastic straps that secure the iPad to the kneeboard have enough elasticity to stretch over the iPad while in a smart case. However, doing this will add bulk to an already less than slim case.
Can you put your license in the front?
Elizardo M on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It does not have a place to put the your license in the front.
Is there a Clipboard clip on top of front top of outside cover for holding paper?
Uffda on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is not a clip on the top to hold papers.
Does this have leg straps or does it simply sit on your leg?
Karen B on Feb 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The knee board has leg straps that attach around your leg with velco.
my I-pad is 5.25 x 8. will this fit???
Don C on Jan 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Probably. My i pad is the larger one. I believe they make a smaller version for your iPad
Does this kneeboard have a tilt function so you can elevate screen for a better view?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. It tilts and rotates.
Will this product work with a Samsung tablet of the same size as the mini?
RE/MAX E on Dec 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will fit the Samsung Tablet. The clips that hold the edges of the tablet are able to expand.
Does it rotate from portrait to landscape, or is it Velcro?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is velcro, so you can switch from one to the other quickly.
What are the measurements of the knee board?
A shopper on Dec 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Mini is 7"w x 9.5"h; the Air/Pro model is 8.5"w x 11"h.
Will it fit an iPad it's an otter box on it?
A shopper on Nov 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, an Otterbox is going to be just a little too thick.
I know it states what iPads it holds, but can it also fit older model iPads?
Casey Pederson on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have an IPad Mini 4 and it fits great - I can't see why it wouldn't fit an older model. It's just held on with an elastic strap which gives it some flexibility in sizing.
I am a helicopter pilot and want to use this on the left leg as I rest my right arm for the cyclic. Can I simply flip it "upside down" so I can use it on my left leg?
Garrett D on Oct 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can - works very well in that position.
