Required Equipment
I don't fly with an ipad, the 3rd hand makes it easy to keep my chart open to a usable size, close to hand and yet out of the way. I purchased a second one to keep in my plane just in case I can't find the one I keep in my flight bag.

Excellent and simple product.
I have owned three of these over the last 30? Years. A must have even if you use EFB most of the time.

Pros: Generally more useful than a kneeboard, especially advantageous used with bound NOAA IAP chart. Compact, easy to carry, even with a kneeboard. Cons: Lack of firm writing surface, easily remedied.

Pros: This is the updated version of the time-tested original; it is practical, sturdy, and devoid of gimmicks. Cons: Not a one! This is the upgraded version of the original; it is tough, well-designed, and eminently practical for the solo pilot. I had to replace my original only because it was destroyed in Hurricane Katrina's corrosive, toxic floodwaters. If you take a moment to carefully adjust the leg-band, it should prove to be extremely comfortable for long flights. A very valuable item for any solo pilot!

Pros: Holds a VFR sectional perfectly. Less cumbersome than a full kneeboard and will not get in the way of any controls. Cons: Poor finish on the edges, feels rough.

will this work with approach procedures book?
Dylan R on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will work. That's how I used it at least, specifically with the FAA charts. I haven't tried it with the Jeppesen charts. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that the metal part clip will obscure a piece of the chart, and since it's usually needed at the bottom of the approach plate, it can obscure important things like MDA, times to FAF, and other important things at the bottom. It has been very useful for me though, and is a lot better than wearing a large rubber band around your leg.
Can this fit through the slots on the flight gear hp bi-fold kneeboard?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have not tried it but it should fit.
