You should search during working hours and you should not carry any picks, shovels or piercing tools with you. The detector is not prohibited. You will not enter the protected areas, military zones, cemeteries. If you are entering someone else's land, the land owner must have permission or the land owner must be with you.
When you want to give the detector to the aircraft, some documents are requested from you due to the battery in it. There is no restriction that you can take the detector in the car or on the plane. You can request these documents by contacting the company from which you purchased the detector. Then you can take the detector by plane.
