This kneeboard works great. I don't use it for the iPad yet but I did confirm my iPad fits perfectly. It has enough pockets for storage and makes everything I need easily accessible. If I have one issue, I'm short so scooted up close to the controls and the board hits the yoke when turning it far to the right. Good news is I only have to turn it that far when pre-flighting. Truly a great addition to my flying shop and highly recommended.January 30, 2019Purchased

3 months agoPerformance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesIt seems that this device will fulfill my needs. It will keep the IPad where I want it. That was my goal in buying the knee pad. I've only used it twice so far, so the top two questions above are NA.November 15, 2018Purchased
8 months agoGood knee pad and arrived/functioned as expected. However, it does not allow for rotating the iPad and have found the size (using the 10-7 iPad) interfered with yoke handling in the Cessna 172. I literally had to take it off and throw it in the back seats rendering it useless. I’ve since returned the knee pad and opted for the bi-fold, rotatable and tiltable version. A bit more expensive, but worth the variations in iPad placement and positioning.October 12, 2018Purchased
5 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesThe knee-board looks just as is pictured. The Velcro strap is a little large/loose for me. I'm able to tighten it on my thigh but its all the way at the very end of the Velcro and not very secure. Just something to keep in mind in relation to the width of your thighs. It also doesn't tightly secure the kneeboard in its folded position while travelling but that hasn't been an issue at all. The material is durable and sturdy. I found it a little large for a Cessna 172 cockpit but was not misinformed about the size upon purchase (just didn't find anything smaller that compared to the quality of this item). It's really handy that I'm able to switch the clip board around and fold one of the flaps under so that I can use the kneeboard on either leg. All in all a pretty great product.May 15, 2018Purchased
10 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGood material, sloppy QAI was looking for a durable kneeboard that would work in a DA42 which requires one with no bulky pockets on either left or right end so as to not interfere with the control stick or the throttle and fuel controls on the right-hand side.
The material looks great. It comes with a slip-in clipboard to hold backup paper and checklists in case my ForeFlight/Apple Pen combo in use should have an issue.
I'm not impressed by the sloppy way the name tag on the outside was slapped on (see photo) - I'm not going through the hassle of arguing and sending it back and forth, but clearly both manufacturing and QA failed on that one.
The price is at the upper end of what I think this should cost, but given the good material I think it's acceptable.
By and large it is what I needed, and I'm looking forward to using it!Name tag label slapped on at 10-20 degree angleMay 4, 2018Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 10 questions Browse 10 questions and 16 answersWill this fit the new 11 inch iPad Pro?BEST ANSWER: The new iPad is the same size as the 10.5. Apple has taken the screen to the edge of the unit. The kneeboard will fit but the elastic bands will cover part of the screen. We are working with our manufacturer to provide a kneeboard that is specific for the new iPad. Please watch our website for the new kneeboards in the future.Can you use the clip while you have an Ipad in it?BEST ANSWER: Yes, if you have an iPad that fits in the sleeve. However, if you’re using an iPad and clip something to the clip board.. it would hang directly in front of your iPad.
The clipboard is removeable though so you can just take it out and strap it to your other knee if you’d like.Does the storage compartment large in enough to fit charts?BEST ANSWER: Yes, but in the "singular." I fly an older Mooney and the knee board fits, but only "just." Years ago I hand built aluminum containers that hook over the front seat adjustment bars to hold a Jepp Chart book right in front of me. Those are now my backup chart storage. I have an IPad Pro 9.7 with ForeFlight I got from Martha Lunken. It fits the knee pad well. I've only used the knee board a couple of times so far, but it meets my expectations well. I live in Reno, so still use old WACS for terrain as things are so far apart here. Electronics keep me up to date on destinations and smaller areas.Do the left and right flaps fasten with velcro across the clipboard?Flight Gear HP Tri-Fold KneeboardBEST ANSWER: No, the flaps do not "fasten", just close. The strap closes with velcro holding the flaps closed when not in use. The same strap wraps under your leg.Will a 10.5 ipad that has it's own case fit into the straps of this kneeboard?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will fit but it is a tight fit.Does this item include the VFR/IFR quick reference sheet?BEST ANSWER: It includes clipboard is printed with quick reference placard information, including basic VFR weather minimums, mandatory IFR reports, airport traffic light signals, flight plan sequence, ICAO phonetic alphabet with Morse Code, transponder codes, emergency engine checklist, and cruising altitudes.The video attached states that this will also hold the iPad Pro 10.5, but the reviews, questions, and description only refer to the 9.7" iPad Pro. Will this also fit the 10.5" iPad Pro?BEST ANSWER: It is a tight fit but the 10.5 will fit into the holder.can the top be tilted to reduce glare on the ipad?BEST ANSWER: This item does not have a specific part that tilts the iPad up.will this fit a 9.7" newer version ipad?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it fits the new 9.7 iPad.Will an iPad mini fit?BEST ANSWER: This kneeboard is designed for the iPad Air 1/2 pro.
