Making The Case For Helicopter Flight Crews

At PIVOT we know that a helicopter cockpit can have limited space, that is why we offer multiple sizes of cases for your EFB and flexible mounting options.

PIVOT was designed from the start to be rugged, secure and allow for one handed operation. We know that helicopter pilots have limited time with hands off the controls, that’s why PIVOT is designed not to distract from the task at hand and allow quick transitions to and from any mounting choice.


MIL-STD 810G-516.7

PIVOT is MIL-STD 81OG-516.7 tested so you know that it will stand up when you need it. PIVOT has many features designed to protect the device, while giving ultimate flexibility to aircrews.

PIVOT’s universal mounting system allows for any device in the fleet to connect to the very same mounting solution. No matter what device your unit employs, you can be confident that it will be compatible.

Thermal Control

Helicopter crews often operate in extreme temperatures. PIVOT is designed to enhanced air circulation and venting via the unique shell design. Only PIVOT offers thermal control by using the chimney effect to pull cooler air in while warmer air is vented.

ONLY 18% of the tablet surface contacts the back panel of the PIVOT PRO 97 case providing an air cushion. This further reduces heat transmission from external sources to the iPad – virtually eliminating potential for thermal shutdown in most environments.

Ideal for for any cockpit or mounting preference

PIVOT gives the unit much-needed protection from inevitable technological change. Now, units can select devices based on merit and fit to the tactical environment, not just on cradle size.

Pivot recognizes some organizations do not authorize non-stc mounts to their aircraft and offer an alternative. Kneeboards and leg straps that secure your EFB are available and make the transition from kneeboard to window mount effortless and one handed.

The most secure suction cup mounts

Pairing a state-of-the-art PanaVise suction cup and the PIVOT Parts Kit, this system is simple, effective, durable, and will not fall off the window.

Formation and low-level flying present challenges with turbulence that requires a secure and confident mounting solution. The PIVOT suction cup system was selected because of its superior performance. PIVOT will not fall off the window when installed correctly. Simple as that.

Perfect clearance, even in tight cockpits

Unlike the conventional airplane cockpit, a helicopter cockpit must meet the demands of mission sets that often include close proximity to other aircraft, either in formation or at low levels. PIVOT allows for infinite adjustability so your EFB never obstructs visual clearing or aggressive actuation of flight controls in time constrained engagements. PIVOT has a simple high-performance design that is low profile and intended for one-hand operation.

Ideal for for any helicopter cockpit or first responder vehicle

If you are in a Helicopter, Police Cruiser, Ambulance or Firetruck we have you covered. PIVOT has adapted our universal mounting system to every cockpit and application. Future-proof, PIVOT offers flexibility to stay on the cutting edge of EFB technology with no risk of obsolescence utilizing our standardized mount. No other EFB solution is so sustainable!
