iPad Air/Pro 9.7" Cooling Case - Pilot Series

You depend heavily on your iPad as a pilot—and understandably so. After all, this device plays a crucial role in helping you to navigate the open skies in a timely and efficient manner. However, because iPads can quickly become hot in the cockpit, we created our X-naut iPad Air Cooling Case, which also suits the 9.7 model. For regular flyers, this is the best iPad case for pilots.

Why Is This the Best iPad Case for Pilots?

Our patented X-naut iPad Air Cooling Case stands out in the industry for allowing you to both play and work in the harshest of conditions. We designed and engineered this iPad case in such a way that you can easily switch between utilizing your battery (the 8AA battery) and Micro USB.

In addition, our case features a battery testing button that shows you your battery’s status. Green and yellow indicate the high and low life of your battery, respectively, whereas red indicates that your battery needs replacing.

Additional iPad Air Cooling Case Benefits

Another reason why our iPad Air/9.7 case is the best iPad case for pilots is that it comes with a latch that is spring-loaded, which makes it easy to load and secure your device. Our case also comes with 26 dBA fans, which produce low levels of noise. In addition, all of our electronics are moisture and dust-resistant.
