ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — As GA makes its way towards a paperless cockpit, pilots want mounting and kneeboard options for iPads and tablets. Apple’s recent release of the iPad Mini left pilots waiting for a functional, secure kneeboard for the new, smaller iPad. That is, until now.
PilotMall.com was early to the drawing board for a new, multi- function kneeboard / hard case for the iPad Mini. Now available is a slim, sturdy modular case with a “Smart Cover” that automatically wakes up or “sleeps” the device upon opening or closing. Despite strong hard-cover protection, there’s still easy access to all ports, switches and buttons.
The case has an adjustable hold-flat leg strap for easy placement on the pilot’s knee. A 360-degree rotating cradle accommodates both portrait and landscape viewing formats. Detaching the leg strap, the handsome case also stands on a desk at a comfortable viewing angle – – again either in portrait or landscape orientation.
The adjustable leg strap can attach the iPad Mini to a headrest, turning the device into an in-flight or in-car entertainment screen for rear-seat passengers. There’s also an optional suction cup mounting adapter for auto use.
Eight views of the iPad Mini Case & Leg Strap, its components and set-up options, are at www.PilotMall.com. Click on the “Product Details” tab under Product Code 30900.
This brand-new idea in iPad convenience for pilots was not expected until February 15, but is in stock now and ready to ship.
To kick-off 2013, PilotMall.com is offering its new iPad Mini Case & Leg Strap at a special introductory price of $29.95 – 25% off the $39.95 regular price or that of less secure or soft-sided iPad kneeboards.
