A bit big
This is a very good product, but can be hard to deal with when flying a small plane. It is big and bulky.

Fits 10.1 inch Note
Case opens to the left to make it easy for writing but it does not fold down between my legs while flying. I fly with it on my right leg.

Protective and useful
I was looking for an iPad kneeboard that would address my requirement to also hold a regular checklist and backup pen & paper. Paper is actually provided by a clever velcro flip-up paper block which you can activate in a second if need be. This kneeboard obviously only works for yoke planes and not when you fly stick. I love the protection this kneeboard offers, it folds into a case with handle to carry it safely, and the knee strap can be hidden under a provided velcro cover. The iPad can be left as as (and rotated) or tilted at three different angles with a stable metal construction. The picture on this page shows a pen holder on the right which I didn't find on mine, it has only one of those in the middle of the desk (so to the left of the iPad) which I find a bit weird. For me it works as I have a magnetic Apple pen, but for a regular pen I'm surprised this isn't included as advertised. If there was anything I'd suggest to improve then it'd be to include a little velcro pouch for backup pens and small stuff like USB-cables and battery). I'm also not a fan of the way the iPad is secured with those corner straps as they can cover small portions of the screen that may contain icons/information; I've seen pads with better ways to do that. But by and large this is the closest to what I consider my idea iPad kneeboard.

Mini mishap
I like the iPad flight desk BUT, it does not fit the iPad mini 2 like I wanted. It's too big to hold it, but I made it work with the use of my protective case that goes around the mini and some ingenuity. Overall I do like the product but it does need to come with a warning about not fitting the mini 2.

Too big and heavy for cockpit use
Too big to fit in flight bag. Feels about 3x as heavy as the ipad. It definitely would interfere with yoke in Skyhawk and Archer. The manufacturer must know this because (1) They called it a Flight **DESK** and (2) They put a big ol' luggage handle on it (not kidding).

Disappointed
I looked forward to receiving what I had perceived to be a terrific value at the substantially reduced price, and I suppose it may be, to some. It is just too large and bulky for me to use in our 182. It interferes with the movement of the yoke, and is not easy to see when strapped to my thigh. It protects the I Pad, and will hold additional paperwork, but just too large for my use. I will try another that does not go all the way across my lap. Perhaps the single leg unit with the drop down pockets would work better for me.

Can a metal "kneeboard size" clipboard fit/slide into the left side cover of this kneeboard, opposite the iPAD mini 2-3 to provide a writing surface? Does the paperholder slot open up to the bottom of that side of the product?
William D on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. There are two ways you can do this. First, slide the metal knee board inside the large or small pocket on the left. Then clip a thick paper or cardboard spacer under the paper clip to provide a buffer so that you have a smooth writing surface to work with and are not bothered by the pockets edges. Secondly, you can reverse the metal knee board so that the paper clip is used to attach the board to the left side. This will provide a solid surface for writing but will not allow for attachment of paper to the knee board (a significant disadvantage). My recommendation is to use the first suggestion. Also, the metal knee board on the left will probably damage the iPad when closed, depending on the knee board clip size, so be careful when using it this way. Removing the metal plate prior to closing will solve the damage issue if the clip is a large one. I have used this system with my iPad Pro 9.7.
