MyGoFlight Introduces Sport(TM) Series Kneeboards & iPad Mounts, Helps Pilots Meet FAA Requirements
DENVER, Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MyGoFlight, a company focused on the iPad In Motion(TM) for aviators, introduced the iPad Sport(TM) series for both kneeboard and cockpit- mounted uses. This augments a product line that includes the iPad Kneeboard Pro(TM), external GPS devices, iPad Flight Bags, and accessories like in-flight power adapters, anti-glare screen protection, night vision pens, RAM mounts and the like.
"The iPad Kneeboard Pro was launched last year and has been very successful," said Charles Schneider, CEO of MyGoFlight. "However, some pilots expressed the need for a case that could be used in aircraft where space was tight or on a mount. The Sport(TM) case is for those looking for maximum utility in the least amount of space, quick-connects to RAM mounts, works with Apple's Smart Cover (iPad 2) and is very 'Apple cool' for use as an everyday case in and out of the airplane."
The iPad Kneeboard Sport(TM) was designed by pilots for pilots. It works in aircraft where there is a cyclic or control stick used between the legs or where space is tight. It fits all aircraft and is perfect for helicopters and sport aircraft, and when there is tight yoke clearance. This case can also be mated to a RAM mount secured directly to the airplane.
The iPad Sport NR is designed for pilots who want to mount their iPad. It mates using a quick-connect Sport(TM) Adapter with a yoke, glare shield, or suction cup mounting system by RAM.
In May 2011, the FAA issued guidance (InFO 11011) defining the iPad as an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) device and as a substitute for carrying paper. The iPad can be authorized for use by the aircraft operator and/or the pilot in command for part 91 operators other than 91K and can be authorized for use by a principal operations inspector for all others. The FAA specifies that to be used in critical phases of flight, the EFB must be secured and viewable and recommends the use of a kneeboard. MyGoFlight's products help pilots in general aviation, corporate, and commercial aircraft and helicopters of all types meet this requirement.
MyGoFlight provides products for the iPad In Motion(TM) for aviators. The company helps pilots be "Good-to-Go" in all phases of flight through the safe and secure use of the iPad, its flight apps, and the internet in aviation. For more information, visit www.mygoflight.com.
