The padding underneath the iPad on the kneeboard does not allow sufficient ventilation to cool the iPad. I had to take it out of the kneeboard to cool it.May 19, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesImpressed!Great value and works perfect.

2 weeks agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesSatisfiedI have only used it inflight once so far In a C172. I had trouble getting my 10.5” iPad to fit in the restraining straps. The restraining straps cover the power button and volume controls. You must remove the iPad from its original case! Also wish the kneeboard had a clip to attach a notepad/papers/etc. I ended up using another kneeboard on my other leg. I like its ability to tilt my iPad in either the portrait or landscape position which helps minimize glare. Overall, I am satisfied with it and I will continue use it.May 7, 2019Purchased

Also the one on the top right interferes with using those buttons on the iPad. Great for older iPads.May 3, 2019Purchased

A wider band with a longer velcro strip might fix this issue.April 27, 2019Durability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value2 / 5Would You Recommend?NoDecent quality. Not great.Looks great online. Just missing some features that I required for IERW. The Hangar had a better knee board for iPads and the features I required. Only plus is the ability to prop up iPadApril 24, 2019Purchased
1 month agoPerformance1 / 5Ease Of Use1 / 5Would You Recommend?NoNot impressedI just received this in the mail. And plan on returning it immediately. I wanted a kneeboard that would rotate not only easily but efficiently, this one does neither. The par with that actually holds the ipad is secured via velcro. While in portrait it seems strong enought, in landscape it’s a whole different story. Only one small piece of velcro attaches in landscape mode, and its on the edge, not in the middle. I barely moved my leg around and the iPad and the part that holds it seperated from part that straps to your leg. I am highly unimpressed with this. The whole thing seperates from each other way to easily. If you hit any turbulance, I would be very worried that your iPad will end up falling off and breaking.April 19, 2019Durability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesDoes exactly what you needI got in the left seat the first few times and my iPad slid out of my lap and onto the floor. 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

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!

Thank youFlight Gear HP iPad KneeboardBEST ANSWER: The Ipad kneeboard allows for the iPad to be shown in both portrait and landscape mode.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.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?

How long is the leg strap?BEST ANSWER: I should have also mentioned...plenty of strap on mine for even giant legs. Like enough for twice my leg circumference of 23 inches..imhoIs the clipboard included?BEST ANSWER: No. It mounts your iPad to one side on your leg, the other side is essentially a pouchI 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 this fit the new iPad Air 3 (released in 2019)?BEST ANSWER: Yes, but the elastic bans will cover a good portion of the screen.Can this iPad case accommodate iPad Air (10.5)??BEST ANSWER: Yes, when you select the product it will ask for the option of the 10.5.Is this ok for the new ipad 11”?BEST ANSWER: It will not fit the iPad 11.Will this case hold the IPad Pro 11"?BEST ANSWER: It will fit but the elastic bands cover the corners of the iPad.
