There are more options than ever, ranging from very basic to deluxe, so the decision can be a difficult one. In this new video, Sporty’s John Zimmerman compares four popular kneeboards, and offers his thoughts on the strengths and weaknesses of each one.

    A few years ago I started using iPad mini and ForeFlight and initially purchased a couple different mounts that were excellent. However after some real life turbulence I quickly found that touch screen technology is not good design for aircraft. Going to a kneeboard solved the problem as I found I could stabilize my hand in turbulence by placing my palm firmly at the base of the iPad on my thigh. Otherwise it was more like throwing darts at the screen and taking several attempts at getting the desired results. The ram mounts never come with me AND I really wonder about the expensive panel mount avionics that are touch screens. My old gps has buttons and I wouldn’t have it any other way
