I wouldn't risk it. I almost lost my little guy thinking the same as you. My GCC is obsessed with me and I used to take him with me outside from time to time. Well, one day the garbage trucks were down the street. The stop/start noise of one of the trucks scared him and he flew away. I spent ~6 hours looking for him. In the end, I found him on the opposite side of the street he flew away. He was on top on my neighbour's car and screaming his little lungs out. I was fortunate that it was ~6:30 p.m. and the street was very quiet so I heard his screams.
Since that incident, I won't risk it anymore. As much as your GCC may adore you, some random noise may cause him to panic and you may lose him.
