Hey guys. I am heading to Arizona to play again and need to know if it is alright bringing my remote line on the plane. I know the safety rules about air tanks, but isn't it kind of the same with a remote coil, considering it holds air/pressure? Even if I did bring it on the plane, could it ruin it internally or anything?

Any help is appreicated.

Thanks!

I dont see why they wouldn't let you have it in your carry on, just as long as you weren't playing with it and stuff. It wont hurt the hose because the cabin is pressurized so its just like having it at ur house, nothings different. If the guy at the metal detector asks you what it is, tell him straight up, "That is a remote line for my paintball gun which is in my checked baggage." or whatever the case is.

Worst case scenario, they get their supervisor down there and you have to talk to him, then you get on the plane and some fat guy is sleeping and hes taking up your armrest! :laugh:

When the remote line is not fitted it is just an open tube.
Even if the slide check is closed the bottle side is open so there is nothing pressurised.

DO NOT use the word GUN, especially in an airport. The words remote and gun could make stupid people very nervous. "It's an air hose for may paintball marker".

Or just check it in with your luggage and don't worry about it.

That's what I've always done and never had any problem (And I travel with paintball gear more than most).

Show off.

Everything we use in our sport can be a carry on item except the marker and the paint.
To safeguard you gear use TSA locks....and declare 'Paintball sporting equipment' at checkin. THen they will automatically check you gear for pressurized air cylinders and you are in the clear right from the start.
I fly with paintball gear three to four tiems a year and have never once had a problem.

And yes At one time I did fly with a remote line...btu I have since moved away from that.

Compressed gas cylinders are allowed in checked baggage or as a carry-on ONLY if the regulator valve is completely disconnected from the cylinder and the cylinder is no longer sealed (i.e. the cylinder has an open end). The cylinder must have an opening to allow for a visual inspection inside.

Our Security Officers will NOT remove the seal or regulator valve from the cylinder at the checkpoint. If the cylinder is sealed (i.e. the regulator valve is still attached), the cylinder is prohibited and not permitted through the security checkpoint, regardless of the reading on the pressure gauge indicator. Our Security Officers must visibly ensure that the cylinder is completely empty and that there are no prohibited items inside.

Please note: Many of the seals/regulators used in paintball are not designed to be removed from their cylinder by the end user. The seal/regulator should only be removed and reinstalled by a factory trained technician.

Passengers considering air travel with a compressed air or CO2 system would be advised to contact its manufacturer for guidance in locating a qualified technician, or to consider shipping the system to their destination via a parcel service.

I made the mistake once. I thought it just had to be empty, but I was told at the gate the regulator has to be removes. Luckily, the field I was playing at in arizona, let me rent one :D
