At only 26 pounds without the battery (29 including the battery), the Journey Air Elite is the World's Lightest power chair! And it combines that lightweight portability with world class performance. Its simple to use joystick and powerful dual drive system enable you to zip around quickly and safely.
It is also one of the easiest chairs to maneuver inside a home as it fits easily through doorways, and can go right up to a table or desk. It also features two brushless motors which work independently, enabling this agile chair to turn on the spot.
Once you are done riding, just one pull on the seat handle folds it up for transporting, and there is also a fold-down back to make it even easier to stow and store. The Journey Air Elite also features flat-free tires and rear anti-tippers for added convenience and safety.
Just imagine how this chair can improve your life and make it easier for loved ones and caregivers to accompany you to activities and events you would have missed in the past.

Take the battery on the plane with you to your seat.

Can I manually push the Journey Air Elite Chair?
