Good concept bad execution

Not Recommended

I was so excited for this product because it was very minimalist and had a clipboard on it without all the bulk. I was sad to see that every time I hit some bumps in the air the iPad would pop out of the frame because there are no clips to hold it in place. Clipboard is great and holds paper nice and tight. I absolutely love the concept but securing the iPad into the frame is not good. Also it does not have a pen holder anywhere!!

Great Idea

Recommended

I like the knee board, it does what I expected and would buy it again. I would like to see some type of rubber anti-skid device on the clip board and some padding on the underside of the board for a little more comfort.

Useful but not great quality

Recommended

Puts my iPad where I want it. I can take notes in ForeFlight and manage all of my iPad functions right on my knee. The flip-over panel lets me write on paper when I need to and still keeps the top of the screen visible. Utility-wise, that's all great.

The construction is inexpensive bent aluminum, though, and it drives me nuts that there is nowhere to put a pen or pencil on the thing, so I'm always fishing around for either my pen or stylus. The clip for the paper pad on the front uses a minimal strength spring, so the paper tends to slide around.

All in all, the utility (except for lack of pen holder) is good, but it leaves you feeling like you got an $8 piece of hardware for $80.

Was expecting more for the $.

Not Recommended

I was looking for a good iPad Air kneeboard with a clip board. This does have a small clip board that I like but my iPad fits loose with very little protection. I was expecting more.

Good Concept / Bad Execution - Unrefined

Not Recommended

Fit and finish was just not for me. Unrefined corners, harsh edges and a rickety hinge. Although there are a few small pads for cushioning inside it still seemed to be a way to harsh of an environment to house an iPad. I had to send it back. Currently using a MyGoFlight sport which I like it a lot but wanted something to offer a minimalistic clipboard / writing surface top.

Excellent Product

Recommended

I rarely write reviews but the iPro Air Commander knee board inspired me to write one. This product is well built and convenient. It makes it easy to write down clearances and to keep track information on an IPad at the same time. Cockpit organization is essential to me, and this product delivers a lot of it to the pilot using an IPad in flight. Highly recommended.

Pros:
It's a good, tight fit with the iPad Air. The clipboard on the front is perfect.
Cons:
Padded on the back, sides, and bottom of the frame but no padding on the top. Also the leg strap is too stretchy, leaving the kneeboard wobbly and loosely attached to my leg.

I got this kneeboard due to the lack of kneeboard options for the iPad Air. It's nothing fancy but it does what it's supposed to.
