Sporty’s Offers iPad Case Designed Especially for Pilots

Mounting system used by 8,000 Southwest Airlines pilots comes to general aviation

PIVOT is tough enough to work in any cockpit, but the case is also perfect for everyday use.

PIVOT is tough enough to work in any cockpit, but the case is also perfect for everyday use.

The unique PIVOT system combines a rugged iPad case and smart cover with a quick-release mount to create the perfect cockpit solution. Constructed of durable, impact-absorbing polycarbonate along with high-visibility silicone “Splash-Seals” for all ports, PIVOT has already proven itself in daily operations with over 8,000 Southwest Airlines pilots.

“There are plenty of iPad cases to choose from, but none were designed specifically for aviation. Most are too bulky and cumbersome in tight cockpits,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “Add a beefy mounting system to the already-oversized case and you’re left with a system that takes up over half your flight bag.”

Because it was designed as a complete system, PIVOT avoids these problems. The nearly indestructible case includes a simple slide-lock mechanism that allows for a reliable connection to the mounting arm. Installation and removal is fast and easy – you can do it in one second and with one hand. PIVOT can be attached to any non-porous surface with the included high quality suction cup. The rotating arm of the mount provides 360-degree rotation with 30 to 60 degrees of articulation.

When the flying day is over, simply slide off the mount and slide on the smart cover. The case easily “pivots” from work to play in just a few seconds. The smart cover includes a magnet to stay closed when not in use, and also doubles as an adjustable display stand.

The complete PIVOT Case kit for iPad Air 1 [5005A], iPad Air 2 [7768A] or the iPad Mini 1-3 [5052A] are each available for $129.95. PIVOT cases as well as an array of aviation-themed iPad products may be purchased at or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS.
