The iFDR Panel Mount for iPad Air & Pro 9.7” brings that functionality and performance within easy reach and sight, beautifully transforming your new or existing panel*.
Designed with General Aviation in mind.
The iFDR Panel Mount was designed by aerospace engineers to perform in the unique environment of the cockpit. The spring actuated mounting cradle securely holds the iPad or iPhone in place during the roughest of turbulence. The clean, flush mount has a shallow chassis allowing it to be easily installed in even the smallest of instrument panels*. Built-in ports for the Apple Lightning plug and a 3.5mm audio cable help keep cables safely and securely positioned behind the panel, allowing you the ability to connect to power, data, and audio without the cord mess.
Keep it cool.
As they are being used, iPhones generate heat that can affect performance – resulting in a high-temperature shut down when you might need it most! Pilots have found this out the hard way when using a temporary mounting solution like Velcro to attach their unit to the instrument panel. The iFDR Panel Mount was designed with cooling in mind. Each mount has a 5/8” tapered hose / tube port built-in, allowing you to attach it to a standard avionics cooling fan. Each panel mounting tray features cooling channels to circulate air behind your iPad or iPhone to keep it cool even under the heaviest of use.
The iFDR Panel Mount is designed for easy installation in your panel. Each durable molded ABS plastic unit is self-contained and mounts with only four screws. Our installation drawings give you the exact panel cutout details and screw positions in either PDF or AutoCAD DXF for precise cuts. The iFDR Panel Mount for iPhone 6 requires a 5.477″ long and 3.025″ high panel cutout and can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.
