Thread: Charter plane

  1. #1

    Charter plane

    My mother has had problems flying commercially since her accident, and since her settlement affords her the option of doing so she is interested in chartering a plane for a trip this summer. In making initial inquiries I have run into problems with charter companies having issues with transporting someone with a power chair, both in terms of beign able to get the chair on the plane but also because the battery is considered a hazardous material. Does anyone know if there are air charter companies that work with people in wheelchairs?

    Also, is she does not have gel batteries, get them. Only the wet cells are a problem when flying.

    I don't know whether she has gel batteries or wet cells. How do we figure that out. Her primary chair is a permobil 500 standing wheechair

    She lives in a rural area and the nearest aiport (an hour drive as it is) only has commuter flights to hubs requiring changing planes even for short trips, which was a problem on her previous trip. She purchased first class tickets for her previous trip, but there really isn't such a thing on small commuter flights. She doesn't allow herself many extravagences even though she can now, but I convinced her to consider this since she is very reluctant to travel otherwise.
