Airline travel with piper?


Has anyone travelled with an assembled piper? We are on vacation and flying home tomorrow. Has anyone brought this on an airplane either as carry-on or in luggage? I’m thinking with all the wires it would look pretty dodgy to TSA


Hey Stu_for_lu!

Yes, a number of us have brought it through carry-on before. I just did on a flight a couple of days ago, so it should be fine. Good luck and safe travels!



Ok - fingers crossed. There will be crushed spirits if it doesn’t get through.


Like other computers it needs to be removed from a bag as you pass through security, but then it should be routine.

You might get some curious questions from TSA agents with children who love Minecraft!
