I was fumbling around to make good use of it while operating the aircraft and was mortified in front of my CFI for being so unprepared. This thing holds my iPad Pro 9.7” right where I need it without sliding around and has some convenient storage. The pockets are a little tight and retrieving things from them in flight can be tricky. I use the adjustable stand at home to watch videos and read but have not used it in the cockpit yet. I reckon when I no longer have my CFI in the right seat to point me in the right direction, I’ll get more use of it. The padding on the back keeps things comfortable while remaining light and portable outside the cockpit. The Velcro straps pass through the case to allow you to hold the cover in place behind the iPad when not strapped to your knee and the pen holder is very handy. If you have an Apple Pencil or a pen with a stylus pad on the back, you’ll enjoy that it’s there. I worry about the Velcro holding up over time, and don’t like that the power and volume buttons on the 2017 model are covered by the elastic corner straps, but my experience overall has been very positive thus far!April 16, 2019Purchased

If I fold the side pouch under and strap it on as just an I pad holder, it is quite thick, about an inch. However, most of the ones that I looked at are much the same. The quality of manufacture is good.April 10, 2019Purchased

Yes it fits but just barely. Considering returning. It’s great otherwiseMarch 17, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesVery good value. Very functional.I use it with a 10" Android to run Avare.
-Very nice sturdy construction.
-Pretty much works as advertised
-Great value. Not overpriced.
-Except for my headset and reading glasses, it can carry everything I need for flight.
- The upper right strap presses the button on my tablet. So far the tablet stays snug without that one strap. This is only a problem for my specific tablet and would not affect an iPad.
- The pockets shown are only usable while the cover is in the open position. Otherwise, whatever is in the pocket will press against the tablet screen and that is not good. So, paper and very thin or soft items only, or, if you need thicker items (phones, etc), take them out before closing the flap.
A few cool features not emphasized in the product description:
- There is a large outside pocket on the front when the flap is closed. I slid my old knee pad clipboard into that pocket which is handy if you need a writing surface or a place to keep backup printed charts and plates as well as paper to write on. I can just flip it closed to use the clipboard.
- There is a small slit in the fold between the two halves. You can pass the leg strap through it if you only plan to use the tablet half and don't want the other half hanging off your leg.
- The tablet can be rotated if it is in the way of the yoke or you just prefer a different angle.
- The tablet can be tilted up for different viewing angles.February 21, 2019Purchased

I have an iPad mini 4 and this was the perfect kneeboard. The fact that I can prop it up is an extra perk and good for reducing glare. You might have to move the straps a small bit to see the very ends of the corners of the screen, but it's really a non-problem since most everything is free and easy to access.February 15, 2019Purchased

Browse 31 questions Browse 31 questions and 41 answersWhat size iPad with this accommodate?BEST ANSWER: There are two options - one for the iPad Mini size (1-4), and one for iPad Air 1-2/iPad Pro 9.7".Will this case hold the IPad Pro 10.5"?

I'm looking for a sturdy iPad kneeboard that isn't bulky, will hold things in place during aerobatics, and won't pop off when my g-suit inflates.BEST ANSWER: I have this knee-board and I love it! But ... I would not trust it in aerobatics. The Velcro just holds the bottom of the iPad in place to keep it from sliding around during normal operations. After having this for a week, I am certain your iPad would fly right off in high G situations.Is it possible to rotate this to wear on the left leg?BEST ANSWER: Yes it is possible to rotate this to use on the left leg.Hi! I'd like to know what difference between this one and Flight Gear HP iPad Kneeboard ?

I just got my new knee-board a few days ago and love it. It has elastic straps that hold the iPad in place. So it is not like some hard case mounts that are ultra specific.
My iPad is a 9.7" screen, but is 11" exactly from corner to corner. If your iPad (or other tablet, for that matter) measures around that, you should be good to go with this knee-board. OH! And it is comfortable, too! My only wish is that they had another Velcro strap at the top, too, for extra hold when i have the knee-board flat, as in my aircraft I actually prefer NOT to prop it up.
Hope that helps.I see questions about the straps blocking the corners of the iPad. Is it possible to cut a slight notch and still keep the iPad secure to the knee board?BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend cutting any material out of the elastic strap because it may weaken the
tension strength or possibly cause it to become unraveled. If the strap obstructs viewing presentation that is in the corner of the ipad or tablet, you may want to try wrapping thread , string, or a narrow piece of tape around the elastic to make the strap more narrow. That would still preserve the strength of strap and possibly improve the view. Good luck.
BobWill it hold the iPad Pro 10.5" ?BEST ANSWER: This WILL fit the pro 10.5”. This will not fit the 12” pro.Will it work with the Apple Smart case?BEST ANSWER: The elastic straps that secure the iPad to the kneeboard have enough elasticity to stretch over the iPad while in a smart case. However, doing this will add bulk to an already less than slim case.Will this case hold the IPad Pro 11"?BEST ANSWER: It will fit but the elastic bands cover the corners of the iPad.
