"This is exactly what I was looking for to hold my iPad"
737 Captain for major airline
Thousand Oaks, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2011
In support of the industry wide change to paperless cockpits, TIET announced today that it has developed a product to allow pilots to easily use the iPad on the flight deck of the Boeing 737 by having the yoke clipboard hold the iPad. With the iPad in the line of site of the pilot, preflight access to all their manuals and real time weather is a breeze.
The MyClipboard, designed by an airline pilot, secures the iPad leaving the pilot’s hands free for other duties. Clips attach in the portrait mode, and the articulating yoke clipboard positions the iPad for optimal viewing. Without adding an awkward case or clamps to the iPad or yoke, the rubberized clips on the iPad itself provide a 100% secure grip so pilots have no concern about their tablet falling or interfering with the controls. The MyClipboard combines strength with aesthetics so that when the flight is over the MyClip could either be instantly removed from the iPad or left in place, perhaps for a friendly debrief at the coffee shop.
"The aviation world is quickly seeing the utility of the iPad as an electronic kitbag, but the accessories out there are big and bulky and fail to take advantage of the elegance of the iPad design," said Jim Peters V.P. of Product Development. "Our product retains the beauty of Apple’s design while increasing the flexibility of use — something no other product offers.”
Key features of the MyClipboard:
- Works with iPad and iPad2, Galaxy Tab and XOOM
- Idealy positions the iPad so as not to obstruct view of instruments
- Neoprene Pad protects and cushions the iPad
- Works with the Smart Cover on iPad2
- Clips hold iPad gently but firmly without sliding
- Fits over most skins and some holders
- Less than 4 ounces and small enough to hold in your palm
- Open design keeps iPad cool in even the warmest cockpits
The MSRP for the MyClipboard is $38.95. The product is available only online at: http://www.tietco.com Now taking orders for immediate delivery.
