When flying with the Inogen One® G3, you must inform the airline that you will be using your
Inogen One® G3 onboard the aircraft. You must also keep a signed statement from your
physician with you that includes:
16
English
• Your ability to see/hear alarms and appropriately respond.
• When oxygen use is necessary (all or a portion of the trip).
• Maximum flow rate corresponding to the pressure in the cabin under normal operating
conditions.
• A new statement will not be necessary each time you fly, but the statement should be
available during every flight.
• Some airlines may equip their aircraft with onboard electrical power. You may have an
opportunity to request a seat with a power port which can be used to power your Inogen One®
G3. However, availability varies by airline, type of aircraft and class of service. You should check
with your airlines for availability and always plan on having sufficient battery power for the
duration of your flight, plus a conservative estimate of unanticipated delays.
• Your DC Power Cable is equipped with a commonly used cigarette lighter adapter. However,
aircrafts use different power port configurations and it is difficult to determine which type of
power port compatibility your aircraft may supply; it’s a good idea to purchase an adapter such
as Magellan’s Em Power Socket Connector Item #EA270. Contact Magellan’s at 1-800-962-4943
or visit www.magellans.com for a store location near you or purchase options online.
Before Your Flight
Here are some things to keep in mind the day your flight departs:
• Ensure your Inogen One® G3 is clean, in good condition and free from damage or other signs
of excessive wear or abuse.
• Bring enough charged batteries with you to power your Inogen One® G3 for the duration of
the flight plus a conservative estimate of unanticipated delays.
• Regional/Commuter airlines do not offer onboard electrical power. If your travel plans call for
flights on regional airlines, you will need sufficient battery power for the duration of the flight,
plus a conservative estimate of unanticipated delays.
CAUTION
Airlines may not be equipped to provide backup oxygen.
• Arrive at the airport early. Airport security screening personnel may require extra time to
inspect your Inogen One® G3.
Operating Instructions Chapter 3
17
• While waiting to board your flight, you may be able to conserve battery power by using the
AC Power Supply to power your Inogen One® G3 from an electrical outlet in the airport terminal if available.

letter with you and ready for inspection if requested.
During Your Flight
1. If using airline power port, remove the Battery from the Inogen One® G3 Oxygen
Concentrator. Due to aircraft power limitations, the AC Power Supply cannot
be used to charge the Inogen One® G3 Battery when onboard aircraft.
2. Connect the DC Power Plug for available airline power. Check with airline personnel
to ensure compatibility.
• During taxi, takeoff and landing, stow your Inogen One® G3 under the seat in front of you.
Your Inogen One® G3 will fit upright under most airline seats. However, if it doesn’t fit you
may turn it on its side with vents facing up.
• It is not necessary to turn off your Inogen One® G3 during taxi, takeoff and landing if your
physician’s written statement requires you receive oxygen during these periods.
CAUTION
A change in altitude (for example, from sea level to mountains) may affect
total oxygen available to the patient. The Inogen One® G3 has been verified
to provide oxygen to specification up to 10,000 ft. (3048 m). Consult your
physician before traveling to higher or lower altitudes to determine if your
flow settings should be changed.
