The iPad is a great tool in the cockpit with its big touch green and the right navigation software it is a good alternative for the more expensive navigation avionics.
I was looking for a setup which allowed me to fly without hindrance of the stick or blocking my outside view and at the same time have the iPad screen within reach. The solution that met all these requirements was a RAM iPad holder attached to the glareshield of the cockpit. The double socket arm allows to rotate the iPad cradle in almost any angle. Below the different components of my setup :
- iPad holder (all models but without case, skin or sleeve)
- Round base (1″ ball)
- 4 screws
- Double socket arm (standard length)
- Glareshield clamp
RAM holders also exist for iPad air or the iPad mini. The socket arm comes in the different lengths : standard (9,37 cm), short (6 cm) and long (15 cm). The RAM products come with a lifetime warranty, the holders are made of high strength composite. The complete configuration can be bought as separate items or as a complete set in the FlyForFun pilot shop.
