Motion Sickness


Motion Sickness is caused by the brain receiving conflicting messages about the state of the body. A pilot may experience motion sickness during initual flights, but it generally goes away within the first few lessons. Symptoms of motion sickness include discomfort, nausea, dizziness, paleness, sweating, and vomiting. If symptoms of motion sickness are experienced during a lesson, opening fresh air vents, focusing on objects outside the airplane, and avoiding unnecessary head movements may help alleviate some of the discomfort.
