The ultimate in-flight organizer

Trying to keep charts, timers, notes, calculators, and cables organized in the cockpit can be a daunting task. Sporty’s Tri-Fold Kneeboard has a spot for everything. The solid clipboard is great for copying clearances or managing a sectional chart, plus it doubles as a quick reference tool. Elastic straps are attached at the corners and are perfectly spaced for holding a 9.7" iPad Air or Pro. 

Features:

  • Sturdy, reversible clipboard - use it on either knee
  • Elastic straps fit 9.7" iPad - use it with paper charts or digital
  • One zippered storage compartment for larger items
  • Two flat pockets for cords or smaller items
  • Accepts Sporty's Gear Mods to augment your storage
  • Two pen loops
  • Padded back
  • Elastic leg strap

Customize your kneeboard with Gear Mods

Both side flaps of Sporty’s Flight Gear HP Tri-Fold Kneeboard are constructed with a soft felt material. This is perfect for attaching Sporty’s Gear Mods, add-on storage pockets that allow you to grow your kneeboard as your mission changes. Store charging cords, screen cleaners, batteries and more. Or put Velcro on your favorite in-flight accessory for quick access.

 

Flexibility built in

Slots on both sides of the clipboard allow you to fold the sides underneath and still use the knee strap - ideal for tight cockpits where space is at a premium. When closed, the front of the kneeboard has an ID holder. The elastic knee strap wraps around the front of the kneeboard to keep it closed.

 

Handy clipboard

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. Clipboard is reversible for right or left knee use. Measures 11.5” x 20” open; 11.5” x 7” closed.

Quality product
I purchased this to replace one I've been using for 15-20 years. It has a nice zippered pocket to hold things I'd rather not lose. I'd recommend it for use in all GA aircraft.

Great Kneeboard
Love this thing! Works great! Holds paper as well as my 11 inch iPad Pro with pockets for a paper sectional, phone, and writing utensils. Plus it’s very comfortable. The back side has a nice groove that fits nicely around your thigh.

Nice, but a little big
I’ve been flying with this kneeboard for about 10 hours now. Overall I like it, but I have to fold the inside flap under the iPad section so that I can slide the whole board further up my leg to get away from the controls.

iPad fits great and the outside pockets are nice to hold paper, pens, gum, etc.

It’s perfect.
Was worried that it would be bulky but it doesn’t feel bulky at all. You can fit a sectional chart perfectly in the zip up pocket and it has plenty of compartments for other things you might need. Feels like quality construction but only time will tell. I highly recommend this product.

Good Value
So far I've only used is simulator three times. Fits 10.5"iPad very well. Is a good balance of size and features. Self mod: I removed the clip board from the center and put two Velcro hook strips along back to attach to right-side wing. Stays in place adequately. I place a 7.5"x5" note pad to clip board for notes, although the ForeFlight note pad also works well. 4 stars for durability because is still new. Time will tell. Overall very good design.

Will this fit the new 11 inch iPad Pro?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2018
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.
Will an iPad mini fit?
jimbob_isme on May 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This kneeboard is designed for the iPad Air 1/2 pro. It will not fit the mini.
Does anyone use this in a Cessna 172? Does it get in the way?
Juan R on Jun 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The Virus has prevented me flying anywhere with this unit. Hoping for a change soon, maybe to LUK. I fly a M-20D Mooney, over 3,000 hours in it, which if anything has less space than a 172. I learned to fly in a 172 long ago. The Knee pad holds a 9.7 I-Pad properly plus some accessories and charts, is comfortable and should not interfere with anything else. I will no doubt use the left knee to hold this. Martha Lunken sold me the used I-Pad, she was moving down in size to a Mini to use in her 180. She didn't use the I-Pad when I bummed a ride with her in the 180 from LUK to Clairrmont County. Great ride! Home is now Reno, NV, was Stead Field, now is O02. The knee pad should be a big help on the full day flight to LUK. Juan should like the unit.
Can you use the clip while you have an Ipad in it?
James M on Feb 16, 2019
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?
Khai D on Nov 15, 2018
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?

BEST 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 this fit the new iPad Air (gen 3) with the 10.5" screen?
Raul on Mar 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It should hold the 10.5. The straps on the corners will cover part of the screen.
Will a 10.5 ipad that has it's own case fit into the straps of this kneeboard?
Phillip W on Nov 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will fit but it is a tight fit.
Does this item include the VFR/IFR quick reference sheet?
Andiel S on Oct 30, 2018
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?
A shopper on Jul 27, 2018
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?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This item does not have a specific part that tilts the iPad up.
will this fit a 9.7" newer version ipad?
m s on May 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it fits the new 9.7 iPad.
Has anyone purchased this kneeboard to use with a Samsung Galaxy Tab?
