I can offer no solution to the core question of mounting the iPads, but I have found that the Griffin Airstrap is a uniquely practical addition to a handheld iPad - I've never found anything even remotely equivalent. It gives a safe one-handed grip on any edge of the tablet, and an ultra-secure ergonomic one handed option if you slip your fingers under the rear strap. And no, I'm not suggesting this as an alternative to a mounting, rather it's just a BTW!

The EFBs in the video are the old ones, now obsolete. Current solution on the AVROs is as FE has mentioned, on the Airbus fleet there are now Toughbooks in use which can be put in the checklist storage box so you can use them below 10000ft, back then you had to have the the paper charts readily available, whatever that meant...

Have a look at The Wallee

All you need is the engineering to add a wall mount in a suitable position.

Easy mount/remove ..works in Landscape/Portrait.

Can use with smart covers.

For the Class 1 EFB list that you had, I think that you mean FlyPad Tray. This is being evaluated by several US carriers, and is about to receive FAA Authorization from one of them.

Sorry, I'm arriving 6 months after the battle question.

We just use iPad knee board.
A bit bulky at first but you get used to it.
Then we will soon switch for the iPad mini which is even better size wise!

The only modification done to the airframes is compatible plugs each side of the cockpit. To be able to charge our units in flight.

The iPad Deck Mount is a mount that can be used with your cover and is an easy to install and remove mount.
They have mounts for many different airplanes.

I know Fokker Services certified IPad FB on many different aircraft types during the last few yrs and is shipping the kits in large numbers all over the world, but there are more providers.

Fokker Services - iPad EFB

FYI On the B-737 portrait mode is not an ideal viewing mode. Physically not enough clearance with your arm is resting on the arm erstwhile flying and hinders using tiller on Capt side.
the iPad Deck mount takes this in consideration.

There seem to be multiple STC's and providers for virtually all aircraft types these days.



All FAA / EASA STC's including 2013 can be found on ModStore. If you become visitor member you get STC and STC owner / supplier details.

Jet2 has a hard mount built into the window frame for the 737. This involves a trip to the hangar to install the new windows. Also fitting all aircraft with power supplies to enable USB charging in flight. The 737NG fleet is pretty much all EFB. The 737 Classic fleet are working towards getting rid of paper as well as the 757 fleet.
EFB provides Perf calc, LIDO charts, journey logs, ops manuals, etc.

For those who mentioned in-flight charging - What authorities have approved this? AFAIK this is can a bit of a sticking point when gaining approval

Why would it? We can charge our aircraft mobile phone in flight as well as our windows based EFBs.

What authority is that with Denti? My post is more for the lithium battery contained in the iPad. Risk of thermal runaway, overvoltage, overheating and fire is greater when charging lithium batteries. Therefore authorities are shy to approve flight deck in-flight charging.

Not a surprise if it's a heated window. Is a laminated window even rated for a suction cup capable of taking the weight of an iPad?
