Today, I went to my 5th flying lesson.
It was windy, with some gusts. I went up and learned with my instructor about the Dutch roll, as well as flying next to the highway without drifting. I also did some rudder turns, including when climbing.
We headed to Pease Airport (where I work) to do pattern work.
It wasn’t easy, as If I remember it was gusting 20. We were being tossed around.
On the second touch and go, my stomach decided that it was time to become unstable.
I got motion sickness due to how much we were moving around in the cabin.
I was still in control though, as i was able to control the feeling of motion sickness by breathing in and out and not thinking about it.
I told my instructor if we could land to take a quick break. He agreed and we landed and taxied to the FBO where I work.
He waited in the plane while I took a break in the lobby, drinking water as well.
I talked with my coworker there, and then I left back to the plane as I felt better.
After that, we departed and I did the takeoff with the alierons deflected hard left due to the crosswind. The plane dropped to the right and we countered with left deflection.
We went straight back to Hampton Airfield after that, since we basically completed the training flight.
It was fun. Other than the sick part, I honestly have a lot of fun flying.
I’m about to reach 10 hours soon, just a couple of more lessons to go!
Have you ever gotten sick while training or flying?
