THE BEST!!!
This is THE BEST ipad kneeboard I have ever had. I've had just about every type of kneeboard sold. And this one takes it. It is just the right size for small airplanes. None of all that extra pockets that you don't kneed and just cause clutter in the cockpit. The quality is top notch and for the price it can't be beat.

I have used it with the ipad and without the ipad just as a note taking kneeboard with its built in clipboard for writing down long clearances and taxi instructions. And its size is perfect. Pen holder is nice addition as well.

Not great for iPad Mini 4, could still work for you though
The case is built well, compact, and comfortable. However, it didn't end up working out for me. I have an iPad mini 4, which is thinner than the previous 3 generations. This case/knee board is really made for versions 1, 2, or 3 of the iPad mini. With my iPad, the device slid around in the case, the Touch ID was almost unusable, and the case blocked the auto-brightness sensor causing the screen to go nearly black. If you have a iPad mini 3 or older, this case could work great for you though. Just be mindful that you can't tuck the cover behind the device; it has to hang off the side which could cause issue for stick-controlled planes (Diamonds, Cubs, etc.). Know your device, your preferred leg for strapping, and your airplane before buying this case!

Close but not quite
Good quality but not good for stick aircraft. The foldover cover is in the wayof the seat and stick. I had to cut a slit in the hinge panel to put the leg strap thru.. that lets me fold the cover under and out of the way. Previous product let me fold the cover over from the top...this is one is as close as I could find to use in my cockpit.

Over all not to bad for the price. Don't like how it covers the edge of the ipad or that the kick stand isn't adjustable. It does function tho. I really like the clip board idea.

IPad Kneeboard
This Ipad Kneeboard and case is perfect, holds the ipad in a handy location while flying and also serves as a clipboard. Great product

Nice, but not for helicopter pilots.
Very nice knee board, but not good for helicopter pilots. The flip open cover interferes with collective or could get in the way of cyclic depending on knee used and type aircraft. It would be better if cover flipped over top and around back. Didn't use so I can't rate reliability or durability.

Does not properly fit an iPad Mini 4
The iPad Mini 4 is slightly smaller and this case does not work well with my iPad Mini 4, but frankly I could not see it working well with any iPad mini model. The straps that hold the iPad in place are too far spaced out, so the mini does not fit snugly at all once it is strapped in - I hold the case upside-down and the mini just slides up. Same goes for the camera hole on the backside since the mini 4 camera does not align with the hole properly. Without first readjusting the mini (impossible to do with only one hand while strapped to your leg), the camera is never set through the entire viewing hole. This also affects the power and home buttons since they just slide down under the leather front. It is also impossible to tap on anything within about 1/4in of the screen edges due to the leather overlap. Another reviewer seems to have solved this issue by just cutting the leather around each button which seems silly for a $55 product. I also didn't notice until after receiving the case that there is nothing protecting the sides or top/bottom of the mini itself. Even using the case, I'm afraid of dropping the iPad since the corner will strike the ground before anything else. If anything, all the looseness makes it possible to actually protect the iPad with a slender case before strapping it into the kneeboard. I will say that the leather and general construction of the product seem very well done and I think it will last quite a while. The clipboard on the front is sturdy, but you cannot latch the cover closed (no magnets, etc.) unless you use the velcro straps. I'm seriously considering returning this product due to all the frustration of the overlapping leather, but I'll try using it with a case on the iPad first and see if it's any better. Hope this helps - iPad mini 4 buyers beware.

Best ipad kneeboard
This is my second ASA kneeboard. It is perfect for my Ipad . Beautiful leather, light , comfortable. The clip board on front and folder inside make the design almost perfect. But the newest feature 'velcro leanto' makes it 100% perfect.

Great tool
I really like the design except the "frame" that holds the iPad. It goes right to the edge of the screen making swipes to bring up margin apps nearly impossible. I use a checklist app that swipes right over Foreflight. To fix this I cut out the leather frame and Velcro'd the iPad in. It works great and then goes right back into my everyday use case. I have had a variety of knee boards over the years, with a simple mod this one is by far the best.

The iPad mini 4 is much thinner than the 2 or 3. Will the mini 4 fit snuggly in this kneeboard?
Moke S on Sep 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It will technically "fit." But, it is by no means snug. I had to return the kneeboard for this reason. The device will slide around inside the kneeboard. Apple also moved the ambient light sensor on the 4 and this particular kneeboard covers the sensor causing the screen to go dark unless you deactivate the automatic brightness. The Touch ID is also difficult to access with this case as well.
iPad Pro 10.5 will fit here?
Paorab on Aug 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Are you sure? Cuz Amazon says its not compatible with ipad pro 10.5
Does the leg strap dethatch from the case for use outside the cockpit?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes! The strap is attached to the back of the leather kneeboard through two leather straps. The leather attachment straps are a bit snug to the leg strap, so it may be a bit of a chore to fit them back in. The velcro on the leg straps are fairly low profile and can easily slip under the attachment straps for removal. The leg straps are a bit long for my legs, so I may be looking at a way to shorten the leg strap.
Will this fit an IPad 4 ?
Jim M on Sep 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This kneeboard will not fit the iPad 4.
1) how well does this protect against fall damage?
2) if the fall protection isn't that great, are there any cases that will fit inside the kneeboard?
John B on Jun 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This case offers very little fall protection. Our item 2810A will allow you to use the iPad with a case that is not too large.
Can you please provide weights for the ASA iPad Kneeboard 9.7" Pro and their competitor Flight Gear HP iPad Kneeboard?
Greg H on May 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The asa kneeboard weights approx 1.5 lbs. The HP is currently out of stock but should weigh about the same.
Does this allow rotation to landscape orientation?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This case does not allow for rotation to landscape. It does tilt up.
The mini 4 is a tad larger than the mini 2 or 3. Will this ASA kneeboard still fit the Mini 4?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it Will still fit the iPad mini 4.
Would this kneeboard would allow me to use a lifeproof case for my ipad mini 2 and still fit into the kneeboard?
Austin I on Oct 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Probably not - that's going to be too thick.
I have an iPad Air 2, which of your models accommodate that Air 2??
Gary F on Sep 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This would accommodate the Air 2, as would the Flight Outfitters, MyGoFlight and Flight Gear kneeboards.
