The Journey Air Elite power chair holds the distinction of being the world's lightest, weighing only 26 pounds without the battery. Despite its portability, this chair delivers top-tier performance thanks to its powerful dual drive system and user-friendly joystick, which allows for swift and secure navigation. In addition, the chair's compact design makes it effortless to maneuver within homes, easily passing through doorways and positioning itself next to tables and desks. Its two brushless motors function independently, enabling the chair to turn on a dime.

Transporting the chair is a breeze - a single pull on the seat handle collapses it for storage, and the backrest can be folded down for even greater convenience. The Journey Air Elite's flat-free tires and rear anti-tippers offer added safety and practicality. Owning this chair could revolutionize your daily routine, opening up opportunities for activities and events that may have been previously inaccessible. For caregivers and loved ones, it also makes accompanying you a seamless and stress-free experience.

Can I take my Journey Air Elite Chair on an airplane?

Yes, and here are a few things you need to know before taking your Journey Air Elite Chair on a plane. Your Journey Air Elite Chair should qualify as free baggage with most airlines, but you can call your airline prior to your trip to make sure. You can ride your Journey Air Elite Chair all the way up to the gate and down the jetway. As you get to the end of the jetway, you will need to remove the Journey Air Elite Chair battery from the back of the chair, fold your Journey Air Elite Chair and hand it to a flight attendant to stow it under the plane. Take the battery on the plane with you to your seat. Be sure to contact your specific airline to ask for their procedures for transporting a battery-powered vehicle, and see your Journey Air Elite USA User Manual for more info. Here is a link to the FAA regulations regarding battery-powered chairs. More info

Can I manually push the Journey Air Elite Chair?

The Journey Air Elite Chair can be pushed about easily when there is no rider in it; however, it is not specifically intended that seated users be pushed around in wheelchair fashion by others as an alternative to the chair's foremost purpose: a powered self-driving experience. (If you wish to prevent your Journey Air Elite Chair from being pushed from behind, you simply lock it in place.)

Is the footplate adjustable?

The swinging footplate is not adjustable; however, the Journey Air Elite Chair is designed to accommodate people of a wide variety of sizes.

Is the seat or backrest adjustable?

The seat and backrest are not adjustable. Some Journey Air Elite Chair owners with special comfort needs have chosen to add an additional cushion.

Customers that are close to the Journey Air Elite Chair's weight limit of 240 lbs may find that the Journey Air Elite Chair is a little more difficult to use on very thick or heavily padded carpet when operating on low speed. The solution is to simply increase your speed setting, thereby increasing the ability of the Journey Air Elite Chair to move around on these types of surfaces without significantly increasing speed.

Will the charger work in foreign countries?
