Quality product for CFI's
  • I have used this case/kneeboard since February and have found it to be a very high quality product. I did however give it 4 stars overall for only a couple of minor issues that I will mention. As for the Pros.... First and foremost, I was worried about my ipad mini overheating in the metal case. I used it all summer for flight instructing and I never had an issue with overheating. I believe that any heat generated by the Ipad during use was transferred into the metal case and effectively dissipated. Obviously this is just a side benefit and not inherent to the design of the product in my opinion. Second, being able have your kneeboard and ipad as a single unit is a nice touch and greatly reduces cockpit clutter. And because of its compact size, it fits perfectly in the elastic pocket of my bose A20 headset bag.
    Cons: The only 2 gripes that I have with the product is One: the front panel doesn't cover the entire face of the Ipad mini leaving about an inch of glass exposed when the case is closed.. This means that you can't use standard small note pads on it. you have to buy their replacements or cut your paper or note pads down to size. I just use a few pieces of 8 X 11 paper folded into quarters and that works perfect. That gives me a total of 8 sheets of paper for each full sheet of standard size sheet. And lastly, be prepared to replace the kneeboard strap after a few months. If you are a CFI and you are in and out of airplanes all day you will wear out the velcro fairly quickly. I had an old kneeboard laying around the house and took the elastic strap to replace the one on my ipad kneeboard. I am still in search of a more robust option. Overall a great product with fantastic workmanship!
  • Pros: Compact DesignReduces Cockpit ClutterQuality constructiongood heat dissipation
  • Cons: Elastic strap should be stronger. clipboard not a standard size

Good Choice for the iPad Mini
  • I found this product to be of very high quality. I like the clip on the outside and the aluminum case. I would definitely buy it again. I felt the case was sturdy and looked like an aircraft product. You can keep notes or logs on the outside and open andreferto the iPad as necessary.
  • Pros: Aircraft Construction, Clip on outside, Holds iPad securely
  • Cons: Padding could be a little better, I put a microfiber washcloth in between the cover and the iPad to protect it, Hinged cover on

Not perfect; but dang good!
  • Not perfect; but it does what I need it to do. This kneeboard for the iPad Mini looks great and capitalizes on the Mini's small form factor in use with aircraft with yoke flight controls. I had a problem using my iPad 2 in the cockpit since there was interference with the yoke during landing ops. Enter the iPad Mini and this well constructed and solid holder/kneeboard. Now the iPad Mini is well protected and handy for in flight ops in my flight club's 172 and 182. With Foreflight and a pad of paper on the clipboard, I'm good to go!

    I was concerned about the metal scratching the face of the iPad Mini but as other reviewers have noted, there's a good amount of clearance when the clipboard is closed over the iPad.

    Only reason I'm not giving it a 5 star is that I would have reversed the hinge and have it swing to the right so that I can use the iPad without the clipboard resting in my lap but rather off my leg to the right.
Ratings:
Well made but falls short on function
  • I purchased this product to be used in a small helicopter cockpit. I based my purchase on the materials used and the ability to protect the screen and have a writing surface when I'm not using the iPad itself. Although it is extremely well made and very strong, the design does not allow the top to swing down far enough to clear the collective without interfering when used on the left leg. When using it on the right leg, it interferes with full aft cyclic travel. If the hinge would allow the cover to either be removed easily or swing a full 90 degrees it would be better suited to the cockpit layout. As a kneeboard for fixed wing, it is superb due to the layout of the controls and extra space. Great product, just not for helicopter pilots.
