Über den Autor

At the age of two, Cory Lee was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, but his thirst for adventure never ceased. He has traveled across the world, wheelchair and all, and has quickly became one of the leading accessibility focused travel bloggers. Cory is a recent graduate of the University of West Georgia and has been featured in publications such as the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, U.S. News & World Report, Lonely Planet, and New Mobility magazine. When he's not writing until his fingers bleed or traveling, you may find him watching horror movies, attending concerts, or eating spoonfuls of peanut butter. Cory hopes that by sharing his accessible, and sometimes not so accessible, travel experiences with others, he can encourage both wheelchair users and non-wheelchair users alike to roll out of their comfort zone and see all the beauty our world has to offer.

Prologue

In today’s world, flying has become common practice. It has made travel - both domestic and worldwide - obtainable for people. Gone are the days of long drives or train rides, now you can cross the country in a few hours instead of days. Traveling overseas was unattainable for most people just 50 years ago and now it is completely possible. The downside is with increased security and budget cuts, flying while making travel possible for many, has also become a stressful process. Lost luggage, long delays, and missed connections are just a few of the things that could turn a dream trip into a nightmare. For those that use wheelchairs, the process is even more daunting.

Somewhere over the Grand Canyon…

Air travel has gotten the bad reputation of being uncomfortable and burdensome, yet necessary. I am here to show you that does not have to be the case. The good news is I have flown all over the world with my wheelchair, I have seen the good and bad, I have learned what works and what does not work. I have years of air travel, and thousands of air miles’ experience to pass on to you to try and make your trip less stressful and dare I say, a pleasant experience. If you are a wheelchair user and think I can’t possibly travel there, check out my website curbfreewithcorylee.com to see pictures and read articles about the many places I have traveled. Many of my followers have asked me how I can go to so many amazing places and want to know my secrets for flying. So I hope this eBook will help shed some light on things. I want other wheelchair users to know that flying is possible and I want to alleviate fears they may have, and give them tips to plan so they can reach their destinations with as little stress as possible.

IATA says these numbers continue to grow each year. While exact numbers are not available from the airlines, the number of wheelchair users that fly every year is increasing as well. With more wheelchair users flying, the internet is filled with horror stories. Stories of discrimination, of unhelpful staff leaving passengers alone without assistance, sometimes for hours, and having wheelchairs damaged or lost since it is not possible to remain in your wheelchair during flight. This makes for a scary outlook on flying when you need a wheelchair. It does not have to be scary though. I started flying at the age of 13 and it was a
