Add to Wishlist
Part# 13-18922


A flush mounting system to dock and fully integrate your Apple iPad Pro into your aircraft instrument panel.
Now Approved for Installation in Certified Aircraft and Rotorcraft!

The iFDR Panel Mount for Apple iPad Pro is a new flush mounting system to easily dock and seamlessly integrate your existing iPad Pro into your aircraft instrument panel -- giving it a clean, professional appearance in an easy to view position! Once installed, the iFDR mount allows your iPad to be docked in seconds, fully connected to power and audio with built-in cable ports. Removal is just as easy -- just slide, push, and remove!

The iPad Pro 12.9" is the largest iPad available, and the iFDR Panel Mount for iPad Pro allows you to transform your new or existing panel with the large, bright screen of the tablet. Fully integrated with your panel, the iPad Pro creates the look and feel of a large Multi-Function Display for only a fraction of the cost! Plus you have the ability to run multiple apps on the iOS for iPad Pro, so you can do even more than an MFD! This mount option is fantastic for use in either the cockpit or in the passenger cabin as a lower-cost inflight entertainment option!

Now Approved for FAA Certified Part 23 Aircraft and Part 27 and 29 Rotorcraft
All iFDR Panel Mounts from Guardian Avionics are approved for installation in certified aircraft and rotorcraft under 14 CFR Part 23, 27 and 29 as "Non-Required Safety Enhancing Equipment" (NORSEE) as outlined in FAA memorandum number PS-AIR-21.8-1602. Mounts and power supplies may be installed as a minor alteration. Please refer to this link for the Guardian Avionics NORSEE Letter of Authorization.

Designed with General Aviation in mind.
The iFDR Panel Mount for iPad Pro was designed by aerospace engineers to perform in the unique environment of the cockpit. The spring actuated mounting cradle securely holds the iPad in place during the roughest of turbulence. The clean, flush mount has a shallow chassis allowing it to be easily installed in even the smallest of instrument panels. Built-in ports for the Apple Lightning plug and a 3.5mm audio cable help keep cables safely and securely positioned behind the panel, allowing you the ability to connect to power, data, and audio without the cord mess.

Keep it cool.
As they are being used, iPads generate heat that can affect performance -- resulting in a high-temperature shut down when you might need it most! Pilots have found this out the hard way when using a temporary mounting solution like Velcro to attach their unit to the instrument panel. The iFDR Panel Mount was designed with cooling in mind. Each mount has a 5/8" tapered hose / tube port built-in, allowing you to attach it to a standard avionics cooling fan. Each panel mounting tray features cooling channels to circulate air behind your iPad to keep it cool even under the heaviest of use.

Simple Installation.
The iFDR Panel Mount is designed for easy installation in your panel. Each durable molded ABS plastic unit is self-contained and mounts with only four screws. Our installation drawings give you the exact panel cutout details and screw positions in either PDF or AutoCAD DXF for precise cuts. The iFDR Panel Mount for iPad Pro 12.9" requires a 12.063" long and 9.057" high panel cutout and can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.

Mount in Automobiles, Boats, RVs, and Displays Too!
Though the iFDR Panel Mount for iPad Pro was designed for use in aircraft, the durable construction and well-designed flush mount can be used easily for a wide variety of applications -- wherever there is a flat surface!

Great for flush mounting on your panel. Unfortunately this panel mount works only on iPad Pro 12.9 Generation 1 or 2 iPads (years 2015 and 2017 respectively). I have a Gen 4 iPad Pro 12.9 ( USB C model A2229 Rollout 2020 )and the mount is too big for this type of iPad. My choices now are either buying an older iPad or cut a new panel since the cutout made for this particular mount will be too large for my iPad. You have to go to Guardians site under specs and there you find out you bought the wrong mount. It would be nice if Aircraft Spruce specified the models or warned about the fact that not all iPad models are created equal. I cant leave a negative rating since I know these work and look really good when you have the right one. Ill see what my Avionics shop comes up with. I dont believe Guardian has an iPad mount for later models of the iPad Pro 12.9 at this time.
