According to a Dec. 17, 2021, post on the company’s Facebook page: “MYGOFLIGHT CEO Charles Schneider (Charlie to his friends) was in a plane crash on Dec. 16, 2021, at 9:20 a.m. near McGhee Tyson Airport, in Knoxville, Tennessee. Charlie was traveling for business on a single-engine craft, Cirrus SR22. At this time, the cause of the accident is unknown. Charlie died this morning at UT Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. During this time of loss, the family is asking for privacy. Please keep his family in your prayers.”
According to the company’s About Us page on its website, MYGOFLIGHT was founded in 2010 after Schneider “rejected the idea of using paper charts” when he learned to fly.
“Instead he used a laptop computer which never stayed on his lap. When he bought his first iPad he thought…well that is something we can secure and did. Our first product, the iPad Kneeboard, received so much attention and demand a business was born.”
After the kneeboard, the company expanded its product line to include iPad mounts, cases, cradles, flight bags, luggage, anti-glare glass, and the first head up display for general aviation.
