OK to fly with your PFD !

CO2 cylinders in the airplanes were discussed a few times already in Sailnet, but I think this is new news and worth mentioning:
This is a copy/paste from this week's Cruising Compass newsletter:
( http://www.cruisingcompass.com/index.php?issue=73#a894 )

After months of revising regulations for security and carry-on items for commercial airlines, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has decided to allow passengers to board planes with personal inflatable life jackets, plus two spare CO2 cylinders. The change took place August 4, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

Inflatables and cartridges were allowed by TSA, but then banned in August 2006 after the plot was uncovered in London to use liquids as explosives. Groups from the Coast Guard to BoatU.S. and US SAILING have been after the TSA to clarify a confusing set of rules. One caveat for boaters: even though TSA regs allow inflatables with cartridges on board planes, individual airlines may still prohibit them. Check with your carrier to see what their policy is. For an updated list of what is and is not allowed on commercial flights, check out www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/prohibited/permitted-prohibited-items.shtm

Yes, but you do still have to check with the individual airlines about their specific policies.. BTW, get what they say about the CO2 cartridges in writing if possible. That way if the gate agent says you can't bring them aboard/check them or carry them, then you'll have some recourse to recover the cost of the cartridges after you get back. You can also try and use the written statement to bludgeon the gate agent into letting you take them.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
