Way to piggy-back Co-Pilot (or Pilot) on Tri-Star (or Aeronaut)?

    This idea isn't quite as neat as some of the other ones here but I think it is doable. If you undo the snaps on the top carry handle of the Aeronaut, pass one side of the handle through the channel meant for a wheelie bag on the back of the Co-pilot then redo the snaps the Co-pilot will sit partway on top of the Aeronaut when the Aeronaut is carried with the shoulder strap. Not sure how much weight it would handle this way...

      I don't have an Aeronaut (yet?), so I'm having a hard time picturing this, but the more approaches the better!

        So, it works! Pretty decently, really. I've attached pictures of my Tri-Star and my brand new Pilot piggy-backed on it. The length of the connector straps is completely adjustable, but this seemed about right.

        I'm not sure if I wouldn't be better off carrying with opposite shoulders, but it DOES work, and reasonably decently. The "connector straps" are 3/4" "belts" with two snap hooks on each. The picture should be big enough for you to zoom in if you want to see more details. If anyone needs more info, just let me know!

        You can also see one of these luggage tags, though I blanked out my identifying info....

          I will try to post a picture this weekend.

            Not nearly as elegant as the other methods posted here, but this works with a not-too-heavy Co-pilot. It works best if the Aeronaut is pretty full. I think it might stress seams too much if the Co-pilot where heavy, but it could free up a shoulder in a pinch.Click image for larger version
