Aviation's Panel Mount Avionics Installation Leader

The smartPanel Mount for Apple iPad Pro is a new flush mounting system to easily dock and seamlessly integrate your existing iPad Pro into your aircraft instrument panel -- giving it a clean, professional appearance in an easy to view position! Once installed, the smartPanel mount allows your iPad to be docked in seconds, fully connected to power and audio with built-in cable ports. Removal is just as easy -- just slide, push, and remove!

The iPad Pro 12.9" is the largest iPad available, and the smartPanel Mount for iPad Pro allows you to transform your new or existing panel with the large, bright screen of the tablet. Fully integrated with your panel, the iPad Pro creates the look and feel of a large Multi-Function Display for only a fraction of the cost! Plus you have the ability to run multiple apps on the iOS for iPad Pro, so you can do even more than an MFD! This mount option is fantastic for use in either the cockpit or in the passenger cabin as a lower-cost inflight entertainment option!

Now Approved for FAA Certified Part 23 Aircraft and Part 27 and 29 Rotorcraft

All smartPanel Mounts from Guardian Avionics are approved for installation in certified aircraft and rotorcraft under 14 CFR Part 23, 27 and 29 as "Non-Required Safety Enhancing Equipment" (NORSEE) as outlined in FAA memorandum number PS-AIR-21.8-1602. Mounts and power supplies may be installed as a minor alteration.

Designed for General Aviation in mind

The smartPanel Mount for iPad Pro was designed by aerospace engineers to perform in the unique environment of the cockpit. The spring actuated mounting cradle securely holds the iPad 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, iPads 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 smartPanel 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 to keep it cool even under the heaviest of use.

Simple installation

The smartPanel 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 smartPanel Mount for iPad Pro 12.9" requires a 12.063" long and 9.057" high panel cutout and can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.
