For many pilots, the suction cup mount has become the go-to method of securing the iPad in flight. The latest generation of twist-lock suction cups are nothing like the cheap window mounts of years past. They attach securely to any window and the adjustable arms make it easy to angle your tablet so it’s in view. Best of all, suction cup mounts can be quickly removed for repositioning or to move to another airplane. They are our preferred mount.
But some pilots, nervous about the possibility of a suction cup failing in flight and breaking their iPad, have asked for a double suction cup mount. RAM Mounts, the leading producer of portable electronics mounts, has recently introduced just that. Their sturdy double suction cup mount is suitable for the most demanding conditions, including seaplane operations and high vibration environments. The double suction cup mount is also required for some corporate and airline operators, and should be a welcome addition for these pilots.
The new mount does require more flat window space, since there are two cups. But we find it hard to believe your iPad would ever fall with these impressive mounts.
