From airsickness to aerobatics

Recommended Posts

I am very vulnerable to airsickness. I have even got airsick on commercial jets. Before I started flying, I used to read in the back of the car while someone else drove me around. Desensetised me.

I get sea sick looking at a wet sponge! Used to be a glider jockey and tried aeros but felt sick the entire time so gave it up and flew power instead. It is all about straight and level for me I'm afraid to say. Ken

 Don't let a bit of motion sickness bother you. It's quite common. By being the pilot the effect is lessened, or cancelled entirely. Some pilots have no difficulty in making me feel sick..  Nev

In stone-age times, if your cave started moving, then it was a fair bet that you had eaten something poisonous and so the vomiting reflex was triggered.  So airsickness just means that your brain is working well. 

Admiral Nelson got seasick all the time. So you are in good company .

Aeros don't make me fell sick at all. My problem is getting my brain to catch up with where my body is going.

Just to clarify.... IF you are doing the flying , You are less likely to get sick than if a passenger. Maybe it's FEAR. (Just kidding.) but I believe fear is a factor in some situations. Where you "look" can affect it. Ginger is said to help prevent it. Have cool air on your face. Be cooler rather than too hot,  and don't have clothes tight around your neck.  Nev
