Yes, you can fly with a GPS ankle monitor. However, you will need to contact the airline and the monitoring company in advance to make arrangements.
The airline will need to know that you are wearing an ankle monitor so that they can make sure that it does not interfere with the aircraft’s security systems. The monitoring company will need to know your travel plans so that they can continue to track your location while you are in the air.
When you arrive at the airport, you will need to show your TSA agent that you are wearing an ankle monitor. The TSA agent may swab the monitor and test it to make sure that it is not a security threat. You may also be asked to pat down the area around the monitor.
Once you have passed through security, you will be able to board your flight as usual. However, you will need to keep your ankle monitor on at all times, even while you are on the plane.
If you have any questions about flying with a GPS ankle monitor, you should contact your probation officer, parole officer, or the monitoring company.
