Nice product with a slight "however".

  • By Trace from Jupiter, FL USA on Monday, December 19, 2011
  • Pros: Well designed.
  • Cons: Not very rugged.
  • Review: Product arrived in great condition. Purchased for personal use as a student pilot. However, after about two weeks of very light use, the stitched seams along the bottom edge came loose and unraveled about two thirds of the way across. Used a hot glue gun to patch it back together. Not terribly upset as it functions as advertised after a home fix. Maybe I got one made on a Monday morning or a Friday afternoon?

Looks can be deceiving!

  • By Jules from NJ USA on Tuesday, September 03, 2013
  • Pros:
  • Cons: To big, side flaps are unnecessary and get in way
  • Review: In a tight and cramped Cessna cockpit, this may not be the product for you. As a student pilot, I wanted a small kneeboard that I could scribble ATIS on and write a few notes from the flight. The kneeboard is pretty big and takes up my entire thigh. The side flaps can be annoying and I really don't find them necessary since I usually keep my sectional in the door pocket. I added a notepad on to the clipboard to so I had something to write on. If you have the air vents blowing on you in flight, I recommend clips to keep the pages from blowing. Sadly, I am going to keep looking for a better product to suit my needs. Very disappointed in this purchase.

not practical

  • By A Customer from LAS VEGAS NV USA on Thursday, September 03, 2009
  • Pros: well made
  • Cons: impractical, slippery pockets, bulky
  • Review: Pockets are slippery and don't close. The entire setup gets in the way of flying even if you are 6'3" like me. I'm thinking about going with a small kneeboard (just clipboard and strap) and a hyper organized bag from brightline.

Less to it than meets the eye...

  • By Michael from Chalfont PA USA on Monday, October 05, 2009
  • Pros: The silver logo is pretty
  • Cons: I wish I held it before I baught it, because this would have been a no sale. Read Above
  • Review: I hate to so, I'm relatively disappointed in this board to be completely honest. I won't bash the product, but here are it's downfalls. (which do out weigh the good unfortunately) The velcro on the left panel is not high enough to secure the flaps closed when an E6-B is in its appropriate spot. And you have to remove the sliding center of an E6B to get it to sit properly in the the stretch holders for it. (this does not make for easy computing on the fly) The stretch material should be at the top and bottom of the board for the E6B to fit properly and velcro should be at the very top and bottom to allow proper closure. Ideally, they should put the velcro over the E6B, so it can match its partner when closing. Chief complaint - E6B in place, board does not stay closed with velcro. Second complaint - The stretchy nylon leg straps failed after three hot days in the plane, and are no longer usable. My Wife had to sew extra velcro to the strap to make it even loosely fit on my average size leg. Third Complaint - The flight plan card on the aluminum board is a nice reference, but however erases when you put anything on top of it. (I'm not about to give up my paper flight plans and/or write on the board with permanent marker, but pencil on the alum. is a no go) Final Complaint - The stitching fails super easy on the log book side of the board. Not necessarily the stitching, so much as the cordura material around the stitching. I don't know, maybe I got a bad make, but this board in no way compares to the Cencal tri fold I had a few years. Its probably a good book for very light duty use. In the end, It feels cheap and it looks like ASA put more time into embroidering their logo into it than doing the research for a better product. Sorry for the bad review, but I can only tell it like it is... Mike

too long

  • By Tim from Pound Ridge NY USA on Thursday, April 15, 2010
  • Pros: as advertised
  • Cons: too long.
  • Review: The board is as described. but for me it is too long. I don't use it to hold long maps so I did not need the length.  Stay short.  Also, I seem to be always writing right on top of the elastic strap. I wish is was located in a different spot.
