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 preimum. 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.

Definitely durable!
Although I've only used this item twice, it really feels and looks like it's very well made. I can't see this falling apart anytime soon so Durability gets a 5. As for reliability, not there yet, but I'm thinking it'll do just fine. So far, it's performing but along with Ease of Use, I'm taking it back to a 4. I don't think there's a perfect kneeboard out there and I might be alone on this but you'd think they would make them fit a little better and take into consideration the seat position under the leg where the left flap (wear on my right leg) hits the seat and doesn't drop down all of the way. Otherwise, I recommend. Very well made and holds what I need.

This knee board works as advertised. It also seems to be of reasonably quality construction for the price.

Great as a knee board. Questionable for use with an iPad. The clearance for the yoke is not quite usable with the iPad in place.

It's too big and I have to fly real close to the yoke so it did not work well in my case.

Flight Gear kneepad - fantastic!
I'm a student pilot and needed something to get organized. 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.

It 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.

Good 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.

The 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.

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.
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 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?
