Cosmic ray detectors represent an interesting tool for the didactics of modern physics. The Cosmic it detector, designed by the INSULAB group, is a fully portable detector assembled inside a lightweight suitcase. It consists of three modules of plastic scintillator bars, which operate in coincidence. The electronics chain allows measuring the arrival time and the time over threshold (TOT) of the signal generated by each scintillator module, which could be used to retrieve the deposited energy. In this paper we briefly present the basic structure of the detector along with the result of data taking on a private DA40ng light airplane.
