The AppStrap 5 has just been released for pilots using heavy-duty or military-grade iPad and tablet cases like the Otterbox Defender, Gumdrop Droptech, and Griffin Survivor.
The AppStrap 5 will accommodate cases measuring less than 1 inch thick. The new kneeboard includes AppStrap’s Velcro-mating design that allows a pilot to instantly switch from portrait to landscape, share with a crew member, or stow for takeoff or landing with no need for reconfiguration, according to company officials.
The AppStrap 5 includes an adjustable nylon leg-strap and buckle. It also uses the company’s original Tilt-Pads to enhance viewing angle and glare reduction, company officials said.
“The new design responds to numerous pilot requests for a kneeboard device that will accommodate tablets such as Galaxy, Kindle, Nexus, and iPad that are housed in large protective cases,” said Mark Pestal, CEO, AppStrap. “The AppStrap 5 allows pilots to use their own cases inside and outside of the cockpit.”
It retails for $45.95. All orders placed on or before Aug. 5, 2013, will receive 15% off. Shipping is set to begin July 25, with pre-orders accepted now.
The pilot-run company donates 10% of profits to AeroAngel, a Denver-based charity that uses volunteer commercial pilots to fly high-performance aircraft on flights for those traveling for medical or other compelling reasons.
