DENVER, Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MyGoFlight, a company focused on the iPad In Motion™ for aviators, introduced the Flight Bag PLC™ series of flight bags, designed from the ground up for the "paperless" cockpit (PLC). This augments a product line that already includes kneeboards, cases, mounts and accessories for the iPad in-flight.
"The paperless cockpit is gaining tremendous momentum as pilots in general, commercial and military aviation move to using iPads as EFB devices with airlines such as United and Alaska, which announced that their pilots will start to use iPads in-flight," said Charles Schneider, CEO of MyGoFlight. "However, the flight bags pilots carry weren't designed for the paperless cockpit. The Flight Bag PLC series of bags are the only flight bags containing a protective pouch for the iPad or similar tablet or laptop computer. They will hold all contents that conventional flight bags would carry (except the binders of paper), but more accessibly."
The three bags in the series — the Flight Bag PLC Pro, Slim, and the Slim EX — were all designed by pilots for pilots. They are designed to be durable, highly functional and very cool.
The Flight Bag PLC Pro is for the pilot who wants to move from a conventional flight bag to one for the "paperless" cockpit. The Flight Bag PLC Pro has a specially designed, airport-friendly protective pouch to hold an iPad, laptop computer or many other electronic flight bag devices. All of the bag's compartments are readily accessible, making it easy for pilots to find whatever they are looking for. There is room for everything a pilot needs in-flight, and the bag can also be used as an overnight bag.
The Flight Bag PLC Slim is for the pilot who is no longer carrying much paper and wants a slim, cool protective bag for their iPad or other EFB device. This is a one- pocket bag that is just an inch thick. There is also an outer pocket to hold the necessary accessories such as chargers, GPS devices, screen cleaner and the like.
The Flight Bag PLC Slim EX is similar to the Slim, but is a two-inch-thick, three-pocket bag for pilots who want to carry a bit more paper or accessories. It too has an outer pocket.
MyGoFlight provides products for the iPad In Motion™ for aviators. The company's goal is to help pilots be "good to go" in all phases of flight through the safe and secure use of the iPad, its flight apps, and the Internet in aviation. For more information, visit www.mygoflight.com.
