Motion Sickness and Drugs

Do not fly if taking anti-sickness drugs. These drugs affect the central nervous system and reduce a pilot's efficiency. When suffering from airsickness the following may help:

  • Open air vents.
  • Loosen clothing.
  • Use supplemental oxygen.
  • Keep the eyes outside the aircraft and try and fly straight and level for a period.
  • Avoid unnecessary head movements.
  • Land as soon as possible.
