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
2 weeks agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat kneeboard for iPad mini 4Fits perfectly, no movement. 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
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesStill exploring best usage of other flapI'm using with a 10" Lenovo Android tablet. It's very secure.
I don't use the upper right elastic band, as that hits the volume buttons. It still doesn't move.
I have to remove the lower right band when charging because it blocks the power port on my tablet. But not bad.
I have no clue what the side pockets are for, or what gear mod you might possibly want hanging off of your leg in flight. The picture shows a phone and maybe a pocket square, just in case you have to wear a suit? They're extremely tight, I'm using it for a thin set of headphones and that's it.
The zippered compartment, same thing. If you put anything too bulky in there, it will hit the screen and maybe break it.
So, I put the board on my left leg and splay the right flap onto my right leg. You could easily flip it around and put the flap on your left if you're left handed.
I tuck a few 8.5"x11" papers, folded over across the 11 (so 8.5x5.5 effectively) with important notes etc on them. They are not easy to get in there, I think I'd rather see a long band that I could tuck papers under, or possibly be able to slip a notepad in instead across the top angle.February 13, 2019Purchased

This tilting inserts are difficult to align. Leg strap does not stay in place, needing constant adjustment. Construction while light feels bulky.February 2, 2019Purchased
1 month agoDurability3 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGood value (Flight Gear HP iPad Kneeboard)Pretty decent ipad kneeboard. The velcro that holds the ipad holder to the kneeboard leaves something to be desired but can easily and inexpensively be fixed if you choose to add your own velcro.January 30, 2019Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Almost perfect!Its not bad, the straps that tie down the ipad do get in the way of he buttons a bit, not a big deal, but irritating. the side pockets are super tight. The picture show a cell phone in one of them, you won't get much more in those pockets. All and all, its still a very good knee board.January 28, 2019Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value4 / 5So-SoThis unit does not retain my new 9.7” 6th gen as well as the one for my mini 4 pad. The Velcro is not very strong.January 13, 2019Purchased
1 month agoPerformance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesVery useful for managing an iPad 9.7Perfect 9.7 fit with protective case and pencil holder. Adding the protective case pushes the straps further away from the screen and doesnt impact the ability to close or overlap the perimeter and holds the pencil perfectly. I like the ability to tilt the iPad base to optimize viewing and writing on Foreflights scratch pad. I have an SR22T with a left side stick and am left handed, so I have to reach across to use the scratch pad as the only place I can put the knee board is on my right leg.
I just got it so I can't rate reliability and durability.January 12, 2019Durability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesI use for I Pad 9.7is usefully because you can rotate,angle against sun not to bothered your eyes and adjust how you like it.I recommend like helpful tools in a air.January 11, 2019Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 28 questions Browse 28 questions and 36 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 secure the iPad during aerobatics? 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.Will this case hold the IPad Pro 10.5"? There are two similar questions that appear to conflict.BEST ANSWER: Yes it will hold the 10.5 iPad.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.How come the availability says “in-stock” on the product description page, but when I add it to my cart, it says it’s out of stock?

Thank youFlight Gear HP iPad KneeboardBEST ANSWER: The Ipad kneeboard allows for the iPad to be shown in both portrait and landscape mode.Is there a Clipboard clip on top of front top of outside cover for holding paper?BEST ANSWER: There is not a clip on the top to hold papers.I know it states what iPads it holds, but can it also fit older model iPads?BEST ANSWER: The biggest factor is the screen size. 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 it fit an ipad pro 2018 11-inch?BEST ANSWER: The iPad will fit, it is tight, the elastic bands cover part of the screen.Good morning. Do you sell your products to Spain?BEST ANSWER: Yes we ship worldwide.Will an iPad Mini, mounted in a Pivot protective case, fit in the corner elastic straps?BEST ANSWER: It should fit.
