MyGoFlight, maker of premium iPad and tablet gear for pilots, announced the release of three new iPad/GoPro mounts designed specifically for Robinson helicopters, Airbus helicopters and other helicopter types. All three new mounts will be on display and for sale in booth #6820 at Heli-Expo in Dallas, Texas, from March 7 to 9.
iPad/GoPro mounts for helicopters
MyGoFlight’s iPad/GoPro mount system is purpose built for aviation and the rigors of the cockpit environment. The mounts are pilot installable without any tools. Crafted from aviation grade aluminum and stainless steel, the mounts are strong, light weight and have a solid feel.
The mounting system’s unique arm allows the placement of the iPad, GoPro or any other device 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/GoPro or other device to minimize device interference with aircraft controls or instruments and to maximize view.
Robinson helicopter center spar mount
The Robinson Helicopter center spar mount works with the center spar on the windshield of Robinson R22, R44, and R66 helicopters. The mount is formed to the shape of the spar and is then tightened with the knob to secure it in place.
Robinson helicopter console bar mount
The Robinson Helicopter console bar mount works with the round console bar found in Robinson R22, R44, and R66 helicopters. The mount secures onto the bar and is then tightened using the knob to secure it in place.
Airbus helicopter square tube mount
The Airbus helicopter mount attaches to the square tube that runs from the instrument panel to the side window. A similar square tube is found in other cockpits as well.
“Creating mounts specifically for popular helicopters has now been achieved,” said Charles Schneider, CEO, MyGoFlight. “These mounts allow iPads, EFBs [electronic flight bags], and GoPro cameras to be situated so that they are easy to use and easy to operate, yet are infinitely adjustable and very secure.”
