I am SOOO excited to announce my first eBook! It is titled “Air Travel for Wheelchair Users” and is now available to purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and more (scroll to the bottom of this post to see where all it’s available). This has been such a fun book to write because I have learned a lot in the writing/research process as well. I am sure that you’ll love it and I wish that this book existed when I first started traveling. It definitely would have helped ease my fears about flying with a wheelchair. To learn what exactly it’s about, check out this description:
Book Description –
Are you a wheelchair user and want to learn about the process of traveling by plane before you take off for the first time? Or perhaps you’re a frequent flier and would just like to learn how to make the process easier for future flights? If you have ever wished that there was a guide to accessible air travel, this is the book for you!
Air Travel for Wheelchair Users is the first book entirely devoted to alleviating any fears that wheelchair users may have when it comes to flying. The entire process, from how to prepare for your upcoming flight to what to do after you land at your destination, is covered in depth. You will learn tips and tricks to make the boarding process easier and your flight more comfortable, as well as what your rights are as a wheelchair user when it comes to flying. Other valuable resources are included in the book, such as where accessible companion care restrooms are located in thirty of the world’s most popular airports. There is also information about accessible transportation in all thirty of those cities, so you’ll even be covered once you arrive at your destination.
Whether you are anticipating your first flight or have flown dozens of times, Air Travel for Wheelchair Users was made for you!

Sounds great Cory! I’m always looking for tips and info on how to make air travel easier with my wheelchair, so looking forward to your ebook. Congrats 🙂
Perfect! I hope you enjoy it once it comes out on November 11th. 🙂
Cory, your book looks terrific! I look forward to getting it as soon as it is released! In the meantime, I have a question maybe you can help us with. My mom has traveled widely in her push wheelchair, so we have that routine down well. (Go to the gate, transfer to an aisle chair, they return the WC it to the gate when the plane lands.)
BUT now she is moving across the country, plus wants to travel more with her electric WC. We are worried about the airline keeping the electric WC safe, so wonder it it’s best to ship it, instead? Or have you flown easily with an electric WC and had that chair survive undamaged?
Another option we have is to crate the electric WC and ship in a POD, with her furniture. Wondering if that might be better. Perhaps some of your readers have ideas about this too.
Hey Laurie! Good on your mom for traveling and wanting to do more of it. 🙂 I actually always fly with my powered wheelchair and about 95% of the time, it arrives to the destination undamaged. In my book, I go over several ways to protect your chair from getting damaged and I hope that you’ll get it on November 11th when it’s released. For now though, I’d say to not be scared about flying with the powered chair. Put “Fragile” stickers on it and remove anything that can be removed and take these parts in your carry-on bag.
