    I don't see why not. Though I would not recommend practicing during flight. ;-)
    Here is a link to the TSA's website listing prohibited items.

    Even if you can, I cant think of anything more annoying than some guy playing away on a practice pad for 5 hours on a plane.

    I'd think after about three hours, the guy/gal next to you may not appreciate it. You may have trouble sitting for the remaining two hours of the flight, if you know what I mean. And I think you do!

    As long as you are fully prepared for the consequences, have fun! Being prepared in this case would be having a parachute on at all times. I think you may find yourself in freefall after about 40 minutes.

    If I do anything music related on a plane, it's jotting charts out using my MP3 player. I am a Drummer, I love drums, I love drummers, but if one started practicing, no matter how quietly, next to me, I'd have very serious words with him or the Stewardess. Remember, a fall from 39,000 feet probably won't kill you, but the stop at the bottom will.

    Yes you probably are allowed to take sticks on a plane, but seriously, Air drumming? Goodness knows, it's annoying enough when someone is reading a broadsheet newspaper or fidgeting next to you. Imagine the fidgeting multiplied 100 times!

    How would you feel if the person next to you suddenly started Playing Air Saxophone?

    Can I seriously ask you, Have you ever been on a plane? Do you know how close together you are stacked on those things?

    If you want to try anything, wprk on some co-ordination by tapping your toes inside your shoes, and your index fingers against your thumbs, but..... Many many people think drummers are noisy inconsiderate ... anyway, don't give them more ammunition.

    To answer your question, yes you can get them on the plane. I did. It wasn't until the plane was in the air that I thought about all the points everyone had brought up and I decided tapping my fingers on my knees was a better way to go. Everything else stayed in my bag.

    You might also want to consider the type of pad. The pads with the steel beads in them might not make it on.

    I've brought lots of music equipment in checked luggage. No problem there.

    If they do allow drum sticks and pads on as carry on on the plane and you start air drumming or practising, then it will be the incident that ensures its illegality in future! LOL

    all the best...
