The iPad Pro Universal Kneeboard Folio™ C (including clipboard) is the perfect high-quality leather, rotating aviation kneeboard, lapboard and everyday case for your iPad Pro, and all other 11-13" tablets. Now you can bring any 11-13" iPad/Tablet with you into the cockpit of any airplane, train, car or truck where it can be held secure on your knee and lap. High quality, rich leather wraps the outside while soft and protective micro-fiber material lines the inside. The iPad/Tablet is held by four adjustable clips that are attached to a rotating cradle. All of the ports and controls remain accessible so the iPad/Tablet can be charged, synced and controlled when it is in its case.
The iPad Pro Universal Kneeboard Folio C™ was designed for the demanding and exacting needs of pilots and the cockpit environment, and available for all. It is designed to accommodate all preferences for how you like to use it - both right and left hand, attached to the right or left leg, as a traditional kneeboard with the clipboard on the outside or as a lap desk. The cover can be wrapped fully around the case so that only the iPad/Tablet is available on your leg for those cockpits or spaces that have minimal space. The choice is yours. Any way you choose to use it, your iPad/Tablet will be secure in its place.
The built-in stand feature enables you to prop your iPad/Tablet at almost any angle on a table or other flat surface. A low slant is perfect for reducing wrist strain while typing on the iPad/Tablet on-screen keyboard. A higher angle gives you a perfect position for watching movies or photo slideshows or when typing with a wireless keyboard. When the stand is not needed it stores neatly against the case and turns into the case's closure system. This keeps the front of the case closed and your iPad/Tablet screen is protected when not in use.
Remove the strap and you have a beautiful every day case to hold and use your iPad/Tablet - one investment in a case can be used as a kneeboard/lapboard and as a protective case.

Fits any 7-8" touchscreen iPad/Tablet - Specifically designed for iPad Mini 1/2/3/4, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Nexus, Asus, Etc.
Adjusts to fit changes of future iPad/Tablets within its size range
Fits my 2017 12.9 iPad Pro perfectly.
Keep in mind, this unit is very large, much larger than most people tend to fly with. I ended up going this route as I had the iPad already and did not want to purchase another iPad to fly at this time.
Im 511 and 220lbs flying Cessna 172s currently. With someone flying right seat with me it is a bit tight but manageable.
The only thing that I was a bit disappointed with was that there is no where to keep a writing implement on the board itself. It uses magnets to hold the clipboard to the left side of the board. This is nice as you will want to remove the clipboard from the inside of the board when you close it and it is not in use or risk damaging the tablet.
It would be nice to see some way to hold a writing device and perhaps some charts to the board tho.

Very good quality kneeboard, but the item description is incorrect (this is the fault of MGF and not Aircraft Spruce). The kneeboard does NOT fit tablets smaller than 13 (I have an iPad Pro 10.9) and there is no way to adjust or adapt it. I contacted MGF they agree there was an error in their packaging and on-line description, and they say they will be correcting the problem forthwith. Spruce was very good about exchanging for a smaller unit (MGF IPAD UNIVERSAL KNEEBOARD FOLIO C Part # 13-12411), which MGF advises will properly fit the device.
