It's good quality, but it doesn't fit my iPad Pro 10.5" very well. I will still use it until I find one that fits better.

Gets the job done, best one out there for the 10.5" iPad Pro
This kneeboard seems like it's the only decent one out there for the 10.5" iPad pro even though it's not even made fot it. The kneeboard itself, will fit the ipad just fine, but since it's not designed for the ipad pro, it will slightly cover the bezels and home button, it's enough that it will make a slight difference and is somewhat annoying, but I've gotten used to it. Also the velcro on the strap will occasionally just let go when strapped up, when that happens in flight, it can be pretty distracting. I really have to triple and quadruple check that this thing will stay put before I fly. It has popped off in taxi before. Also do not drop your iPad in this kneeboard, the screen will be protected but forget about the edges, they'll be damaged. Besides these downfalls, I still think it's one of the best options out there. The clipboard on the front is great for use with a notepad to write down clearances or other info like the ATIS. The pocket on the inside is super tight so don't expect to put a medical certificate in there unless you want to crumple it up. This kneeboard could be way better for the 10.5" if they'd actually update it for it, but regardless it's still likely the best option out there for 10.5" iPad pros

Poor edge protection, DOES NOT FIT 10.5" iPad Pro
This case does not protect the edges of your iPad from damage. The fake leather feel is really nice and the interior of the case feels great, but the cover is stiff, so it does not easily fold down the side of your leg when you have the cover open to use the iPad.
The description says it fits the iPad 10.5 pro "snugly." This is false. The case fits EXTREMELY SNUGLY and covers the home button, making it impossible to unlock your iPad without sliding your finger underneath the bottom edge of the case.

Would probably be a good choice for an iPad air as it is designed for.

Good, but doesn’t have sleep/wake function
I like it, but it is a serious hindrance that it doesn’t have the magnets needed to do the sleep/wake function for the iPad 5th gen. This is a serious fault that has caused a loss of battery on long flights. It is also a little bit loose on the iPad but so far, the iPad fits somewhat well and it protects it well.

Dont buy for an ipad pro
This simply does not fit an iPad pro. Yes, you can wedge it into the kneeboard, but the "home" button is blocked. Its just not a match.
It's a nice kneeboard design but I feel misled by the statement that an Ipad pro could also fit.

Does not fit the iPad Pro
This is good cover for your iPad out of the cockpit, and would be perfect in the cockpit - IF I could see the entire screen or access the the buttons on my iPad Pro! It would be a great product for an older iPad, but if you have the new iPad Pro, the leather covers too much of the device to be functional.

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.

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
I have a Samsung Tab-A, its just a tiny bit bigger than the latest Ipad mini. A fit?
Jim S on Jan 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it should fit.
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 knee board hold an iPad 12.9 ?
Robert F on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This will not hold the iPad 12.9. We currently do not have a kneeboard for this size iPad
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.
