Reliable Gear for Real AviatorsFlight Outfitters Logo

The hottest brand in aviation, Flight Outfitters, is dedicated to equipping pilots with long-lasting, great looking gear. Now that means more than just flight bags. Flight Outfitters is proud to introduce their first kneeboards. Designing gear for the iPad pilot is what started the Flight Outfitters adventure so an iPad kneeboard was the next logical step. Meticulous design and solid construction have all led up to this. You focus on getting to the next destination; let Flight Outfitters help you on the journey. 

NEW DESIGN
Finding the right spot to mount the iPad can be a challenging task. The pilots at Flight Outfitters have revolutionized the way we utilize the iPad in the cockpit. The new Flight Outfitters iPad Kneeboards take cockpit organization to a whole new level. Loaded with innovative, pilot friendly features, these kneeboards provide a sturdy mounting bracket for an iPad Mini, Air or Pro. The bracket rotates for both portrait and landscape orientation.

WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT?
How about a place to take notes or hold a cell phone? The side of the kneeboard consists of a structured pocket that, when unzipped, creates a rigid platform. This platform is sized perfectly for a small 3” x 5” notepad (included) or cell phone. Lined with soft felt, this platform holds any size of iPhone. 

The unique design is completely reversible for use on either leg. Heavy-duty elastic leg strap securely holds the kneeboard in place. Includes drawstring bag for storage. 

Features:

  • Fold down platform
  • Note pad
  • Center rotating point
  • Extra thick elastic strap
  • Non-slip underside
  • Study clip
  • Padded back
  • Pen/stylus pocket
  • Mesh pocket


Compatibility
Larger model fits iPad Pro 9.7", iPad 2017, and Air 1-2. iPad Pro 10.5" will fit, but it is tight. iPad Mini fits all models (1-4).

Elastic bands will accommodate a thin case, but not larger cases like Otterbox or Lifeproof.

Ordering Instructions:
1. please specify iPad

Broke shortly after a year
Good kneeboard, I haven't had any issues until recently. It works well for my use but I can't give it a full 5 stars with the broken clip.
I would suggest it if you don't use the iPad for anything other than staying in the kneeboard almost permanently to prevent stress on the hold points.

Kneeboard with iPad Pro 10.5
Pros:
-Well made, durable
-Rotation is a very nice feature in a small cockpits
-laterl zip pocket it's almost perfect
-My iPad Pro 10.5 fits well the clamps firmly secure it

Cons:
-The description says that is compatible with iPad Pro 10.5, but for me the clamps are too tight, 9.7 will fit better
-Because the thigthnes of the clamps I don't know how will last the elastic bands that holds the clamps
-It's a bit bulky when you try to store in your bag
-With 10.5 when it's in horitzontal position it's difficult to close the zip from the right side pocket, and also use the left mesh pocket.

Nice kneeboard, but...
This kneeboard securely holds an iPad. It is made well and seems to be very durable. It held my iPad even with a protective back on the iPad, so it can adjust to a wide variety of sizes and thicknesses. However, it it pretty bulky and quite heavy. I returned it because of the size and weight. The side zipper compartment added to the bulkiness, and for me, wasn't useful.

Good product
I have just used this kneeboard a couple of times, but it is very easy to use, functions well, has just the right amount of extra storage and seems well made. I have a simpler kneeboard, but missed some of the storage features for a charge cord and to store my iPhone, which I use as a back up to the iPad mini 4.

pretty much useless
From the description and pictures, I thought I had found just the right iPad kneeboard. I could not be more disappointed. Bulky, no protection, side notepad platform is a nice idea, but useless and sits at an awkward angle. The tilt angle does not adjust and is not at proper viewing angle. Virtually useless. does not even have a pen or stylus holder!

A Perfect iPad Mini Kneeboard
This kneeboard is more like a compact Swiss army knife. I fly as part of an aircrew in Civil Air Patrol, so needed something that would not only secure my iPad Mini during flights, but would also serve as a compact "office", offering me a place to take important notes during missions. This kneeboard is the only one I found that truly fits the bill, and also has a pocket on the left side where I can keep my Anker external charge pack, whether I'm using it to recharge the iPad mid-flight or just storing the charger. Bear in mind that this kneeboard won't fold up to protect the face of your iPad... and that's because its built with loads of functionality specifically as a flight accessory. It DOES come with a sturdy drawstring bag to slip the entire unit inside when not in use to protect the iPad. You may also want to consider the usual types of screen protectors to apply onto the iPad face as an extra measure of protection. This is not your usual iPad case that does nothing but protect the iPad. It is a purpose-built tool that is exclusively for pilots, and it performs like no other at its purpose.

Very comfortable and versatile
So much more comfortable than my traditional kneeboard. High quality. Only complaint is when it's all folded up it's bulky, making it a tight fit in my Lift bag.

Handy pilotgear
At first it looks a bit bulky and it is actually. However : weight is low due to use of modern lightweight materials. Once in use you will love it as much as I do. Very practical especially in smaller cockpits like single engine 4 seaters . Higly recommended.
