why doesn't 'go' work here? How would one say 'he is able to go' in danish?

    Depends on the context. The broadest translation I can think of is "Han er i stand til at tage afsted."

    So without contacts, go should be acceptable. Correct?

    Can you use the phrase "i stand til" to denote ability in other situations too? For example: Han er i stand til at lave frugtkage.

    Yes, as far as I understand. Not a native, though.
