Mygoflight’s New Overhead Ipad Rail Mount Changes Cockpit Dynamic For Two Veteran Citation Jet Pilots

“Viewing an iPad in a Citation, as in many aircraft, has been very difficult. Space is tight!” said Bob Stedman, pilot and president of Independence Aviation. “Placing the iPad overhead and centered between me and the co-pilot proved to be extremely user friendly and natural. It looked like the iPad was designed into the aircraft. Vision of the panel and outside was unencumbered, and the centered position proved very effective for crew briefings and STAR and approach planning. Heads down time was reduced and it took less time to glean information then looking down into the panel. Impressive!”

“The best thing about having the iPad mounted above and between the two pilots was our ability to review details regarding a procedure together.” said Ken Fukayama, pilot and flight instructor with Independence Aviation. “I personally look for every way possible to decrease cockpit workload to free up time to improve situational awareness. The MYGOFLIGHT iPad Rail Mount allowed us to do just that!”

MYGOFLIGHT’s rail mount system is purpose built for aviation and the rigors of the cockpit environment. This mount is pilot installable without any tools. Crafted from aviation grade aluminum and stainless steel, it is strong, light weight and has a solid feel. The mounting system’s unique arm allows the placement of the iPad or any other tablet exactly where it needs to be, all from a single control knob which controls three swivel joints. This allows for exact placement of the iPad to minimize device interference with aircraft controls or instruments and to maximize view.

An available option will be MYGOFLIGHT’s new iPad AirCooled™ Sport, a fan equipped case to combat any issues created by the sun hitting the back of the iPad causing it to overheat. Both of these new products will be on display during Sun-n-Fun from April 5th to the 10th in Hangar C, booth 49.

“Space is so tight in many aircraft which forced us to search for a new solution for mounting the iPad” said Charles Schneider, CEO, MYGOFLIGHT. “The shade monorail system is a great choice for a mount as it allows pilots to look up and reduce heads down time. Our rail mount adapts to any sized rail between 5/16″ to ½” in diameter and works with any sized iPad or tablet.”
