3 and a half easy ways to deal with Airsickness

I have been a pilot wannabe since I was about 6 years old and abandoned my train engineer fantasies for dreams of flight. I had my first flying lesson when I was 11 years old and told everyone that I would have my pilot's license before I had my driver's license.

Things did not quite turn out that way.

I still have dreams of flying and take a lesson every year or two. It's all about the persistence.
I also take advantage of any available opportunity to be around airplanes which led me to a season de-icing airplanes at DIA which easily qualified as one of the best jobs I've ever had. Here is a blog about self-love I wrote while waiting on the tarmac in a de-icing truck in the middle of the night.

In spite of my love of flying I often got sick when I would take flying lessons so I learned a few different ways of getting through a lesson without using the inadequately sized sick bag. It was with these methods in mind that I responded to a request by a Readers Digest reporter for tips on how to defeat airsickness. I wrote about 3 and a half easy tips you can use if in that predicament. Read about how you can deal effectively with air sickness in that article.
