    Hi Miykael,

    Yup, its true, you must use a regular seat in the plane.

    While I am not paralyzed, my bottom certainly gets sore – that is the biggest hassle for me.  My last trip I tried using an inflatable travel cushion like this one: Inflatable Seat Cushion by Vive

    While it wasn’t perfect, it was better than nothing…

    The other thing I found that helps is getting a sleeping pill from your doctor.  It has really helped me get through long flights!
