I am looking into options to replace my old Ipad air 2.
I like that it fits inside the yoke and I sit high enough that it does not restrict view of instruments. I also have a mini but prefer the larger screen. I notice the newer Ipads are larger than my current Air2. Do any of you use a current Ipad on the yoke that is not the mini?
Also ideas on cellular and memory size. I use
I use mini so no opinion on the big-format iPad in the cockpit.
I got the larger-memory one (256) and while it is much more than enough for using it as a dedicated flying device (ForeFlight data for a handful of states is less than 10GB), it leaves space for other things in case I decide to repurpose it later on. Which I think is more likely with a bigger device than the mini.
Cellular.. honestly I never felt the need for it. I always carry my phone with me when I am flying and the “hotspot” feature connects the mini to the Internet very well.
Just some random thoughts. Cheers!

I use an iPad 10.5” connected to a Sentry mounted on the yoke with the mygoflight case/mount. I also prefer the larger screen compared to the mini. I’ve used this setup since training and it works well for me.
Also it’s only 64GB but works for me as it’s dedicated to flying and just runs Foreflight.
