    If you are using a iPP during flight, what kneeboard are you using, and also, does it help to have the Apple Pencil to use as a scratchpad, like with Seattle Works efb?

    At the moment, I'm putting together a Stratux, and figuring on what iPad to get (mini is out... Mrs. thequik has one, and it's too small for me, as I want to use it for more than just a map for flying.)

    I can't be too much detailed about that, but in our organization we are using iPads and iPads Mini for that.
    Ipad Pro in a cockpit ? It wouldn't fit even on a 777 cockpit...

    It depends on where the controls are, with a center placed control the iPad pro will be too big. Cessna or 777.

    There is a renter that uses it at the place I work, he only flies our cirrus- with the control out on the side of the aircraft. There the Pro is as out of the way as an air, or he can ram mount it on the side side of the aircraft, as a 2md mfd.

    I'll cut one out of cardboard and see how that works. I was looking at it being in the landscape mode.

    (and I can see if it fits on a 777... there should be one around here.)

    It depends on the software. Most of the apps installed on ours work better in portrait.
