    • We now have usb power in our mediums, but I built a cord and took power from the 2 pin connector used for refueling or stobex power, and then Used a 12-24 volt cigarette usb adapter to power the iPad and phone during flight... The suction mount and X grip are awesome!!! I switched from Foreflight to Garmin Pilot, much easier to enter a lat and long on the go with Garmin...
    • I have a miniPad that I suction cup to the windshield of my medium utilizing an Ram "X" holder. Never had an issue. Trick is to check that it is not loose before you fire up. I also velcro a battery pack on the dash to keep it powered because Foreflight sucks ALOT of battery power!
    • Safety culture is important no matter what size the operation, your company is lacking in it from your description.  Sometimes the safety weinies have a point.  It may seem overkill but we have an independent control check that's accomplished by someone who didn't sign for the work.  206 mast nut and lock is one and after any rotor adjustments is another.  Any flight or engine control must be dualed.
    • I've worked at a couple of places now that have banned the use of suction cups on windscreens. The reason being: On a hot sunny day, the suction cup will deform the windscreen. I've seen it on an Astar  but not on a Jetbox. But they took no chances after the first incident.

      Jetranger is easy, you mount the ram ball on top of the dash.
    • Although it fits only iPad and iPad Air models, Mount-It! Tablet PC Tablet PC keeps your iPad secure by pulling a bag around your iPad and keeping the color of the wall. You will not have to worry about any large collection mechanism that obstructs your friends, family, and guests. 700-020 Dumps In addition, come with a lock system that uses the Allan key, which means that you can make sure that it is not easy to remove the wall. It even comes with all the hardware you need in the box.
