Win Capt Force’s iPro Aviator

Hey!  look!  A contest!  I’ve done very few of these, but it’s time to do one now.

Want to win my iPro aviator from For Pilots Only?

The best original aviation limerick takes it! Write and submit yours between now and 8:00 pm US ET on 19 October 2012 as a comment to this post or e-mail it to me at  Note that comments to this post are moderated, so your limerick might not show up immediately.

Stay on topic. Rhyme and rhythm matter.  See the Wikipedia entry  for proper form.  Saltiness is fine (and is, arguably, an essential element of the limerick form). Disparagement of race, gender, sexual preference, etc. will get you the boot.

Multiple entries are fine.  Write all you want.

You’ll continue to own your rights in the limerick, but submission constitutes a license for Airspeed to use your limerick in future Airspeed media of any and all kinds and to attribute it to you.  You represent and warrant that your submitted limerick is your own work and that you have all rights in it necessary to grant the above license.

Steve is the sole judge and his decisions are final.

For what are you exerting your considerable poetic talents?  One iPro Aviator kneeboard (for iPad 2 or 3) from For Pilots Only.  The iPro Aviator is a well-made assembly of plastic, rubber, elastic, and metal that come together beautifully to turn your iPad into a kneeboard.  And, because there’s a flip-up panel that can cover the lower 2/3 or so of the screen, you’re not giving up your old-school notepad when you strap on the iPro Aviator.

If you fly straight and level all the time and/or don’t mind fishing around for your iPad on the floor or between your seats while your nose comes up and your airspeed decays, by all means just lay your iPad on your lap.  But, if you’re serious about cockpit resource management and having your information right there when you look for it, the iPro Aviator is a great way to secure your iPad for use in your aircraft.

The iPro Aviator and other promotional consideration was generously provided by For Pilots Only.

Ready . . . Go!
