Okay, I know this is an old one, but I can’t remember what, if any, conclusive answer was given!
Flying on Saturday & taking a pony with me, which will be packed in the crate with the rest of my gear.  The dive gear is on the reservation so the airline knows that I am taking it on the flight.
It will be packed at the bottom of the crate so I don’t want to have to take it out unless forced to but I would expect it would be quite likely that we would have to open the crate for inspection.

What is the best way to present the cylinder – what can I get away with?  I have seent he standard “empty with the valve open” stuff, but surely that is not a good way to carry your cylinders unless you really want them full of moisture?  Will I get away with a few bar (<5) in them and the valve shut which would be my preference?  After all, the fractions of a bar difference in the drop in atmospheric pressure are nowhere close to the vessel working pressure!
Any advice gratefully received, as always…

Cheers

Lou

Yep, already the asked the guy that, he said no problem.  He was bemused as to why we wanted ponies though - not too common in Canada as far as I could make out!  

Cheers
