Next month I am flying for the first time with a 4yo (uses a Graco Nautilus) and a 3yo (uses a Graco Comfortsport). I am planning to buy the 3yo a Nautilus before the trip, since I've read the Nautilus is approved for planes. However, I don't see such a sticker on my son's Nautilus. How do I show the people at the airport that it can be used, or am I just missing the sticker??? Thanks for the help.

I just flew with a GN last weekend, they asked if it was FAA Aproved but didn't ask to see a sticker.. That things is HEAVY! If i were you and the comfortsport still works/fits your younger child i'd take that for the trip with the 1 Nautlius.. I also did something simiar to this:

only i just used a 2 pack of welding rings and a load-bearing carribeaner i already had, my ds sat in it the whole way though the airports (He is 3 and 36 ish pounds)

Good luck flying! my son actually loved it! :thumbsup:

ETA: I wanted to add that if i had a light weight seat that fit my son (Such as a comfort sport) I totally would have used it instead of the Marathon or the GN (They are both so heavy and cumbersome!)

The ComfortSport is FAA approved. The sticker is on the bottom of the seat, at least it is on mine. I flew with it not too long ago, and I think it makes a great travel seat.
