Not an -8, they are tandem seating. Likely a -7 or -6 (older version of the -7). I'd guess the iPad is used for IFR charts and loading the flight plan into the Skyview.Sweet! I'm guessing RV-8? Just curious about the iPad. Do you prefer Fly-Q over the panel-mounted GPS? Is it because of usability, larger map, etc? Very nice!
