Today’s post comes to you from an altitude of 32,900 feet at speeds of 500+ mph. It isn’t often that I fly but, when I do, I always feel very comfortable taking my Pelikans along. I understand that this can be a topic of concern for fountain pen aficionados as stories of in-flight inky disasters abound. I thought that a post about flying with a Pelikan (as well as just about any other piston filled fountain pen) would be timely. The good news is that air travel with fountain pens can essentially be worry free if you adhere to a few general principles.
