The Agronn Clipboard is designed to replicate the flight control yoke clipboard found in the Boeing 737NG. Agronn is based in Istanbul, Turkey, but the product was shipped to the United States from the reseller in the Netherlands.
When I purchased the Simujabs Yoke, I realized it did not include a clipboard. I found this one online and ordered it. If you are interested, I also wrote up a fairly comprehensive list of the different yoke offerings in my other article – What the Yoke?
ORDERING / PRICE (in Euros, rounded up)
The Agronn Clipboard was ordered via the AviationMegastore website.
€90 – Agronn Clipboard
SHIPPING / PACKAGING
The Agronn clipboard arrived in just a few days. It came in a very nice box covered in full color artwork.
Inside the outer sleeve is another box with color artwork. Within this, we find the clipboard itself. I removed a layer of nicely cut foam to expose it.
The clipboard was in perfect condition thanks to the high-quality packaging.
DRIVERS / MANUALS
The Agronn clipboard requires no drivers or manuals.
ASSEMBLY / INSTALLATION
The Agronn clipboard comes fully assembled. The checklist is silk-screened on a hard placard. The yellow checklist reminder pip slides the full length and has detents at each line.
The Agronn clipboard has a working clip system at the top and includes the three correct angle positions with detents for each.
The rear of the Agronn clipboard has 3 pre-tapped holes for mounting it to the yoke. The base is cast aluminium with laser-etched graphics. The bolts and a hex wrench are included.
INTEGRATION / OPERATION
I was a little worried that I would have a hard time mounting this clipboard on my Simujabs yoke, but luckily, the yoke already had the three clipboard holes in the correct places. I simply removed the existing plastic cover from the yoke and easily bolted this clipboard in place.
This is the Simujabs Yoke before the Agronn clipboard.
And, after the Agronn clipboard was mounted.
I have not needed any support from Agronn with this product, but when I have spoken with them via email, Cengiz has been very responsive and helpful.
The Agronn clipboard is extremely well made using a cast aluminium backing plate and all metal construction. Actually, the only non-metal piece is the small yellow checklist pip. It all works exactly as expected and performs extremely well.
This not only adds the correct realism for the cockpit yoke, but also gives me someplace to put all my charts. I am extremely satisfied with it and happy to give it a perfect 10 out of 10!
