ASA has introduced two new kneeboards for pilots who use the iPad mini or iPad Air.
Made from leather, each kneeboard features a wide hook and loop leg strap to hold it in place during flight and a clip on the front cover for securing a notepad or other paper documents for easy access in flight, according to company officials.
The built-in adjustable easel folds to position the iPad at a tilted viewing angle; alternatively, it can lay flat. The dock connector/power port is easily accessible with the cover closed, and a window on the back cover exposes the camera lens for picture taking. A small elastic loop holds a pen or stylus.
Inside, the lining protects the screen from damage, and a pocket provides additional certificate and document storage.
Prices range from $59.95 to $64.95.

It looks nice enough, and the clip on the front cover for a pad of paper is good. But, it opens to the left. That doesn’t work for airplanes with a center stick and right handed pilots who have to wear the kneeboard on their right leg. To work for us, it needs to open to the right. It seems like all you’d have to do to fix this is make the clip on the outside cover able to be moved to the “bottom” of the cover, such that when you turn the kneeboard “upside down” to allow it to open to the right, the clip will now be “on top”.
