Common Causes of Air Sickness
Flying in a plane can only be as enjoyable an experience as the aircraft allows, and there’s nothing quite as detrimental to that experience as feeling sick or fatigued during the flight. There are several factors that can lead to travel sickness, and at Nextant Pacific, we want to make sure that you minimise the chances of them occurring when purchasing a plane from us. Here’s a look at the most common causes, and how they can be affected.
One of the most common causes of travel sickness is cabin pressure. Although cabin pressurisation is a necessity for any aircraft hoping to travel at high velocity, it’s common for different aircraft to possess varying pressurisations. If you’re curious as to the pressurisation level of your chosen aircraft, ask one of our team and we’ll give you a few techniques to minimise the effect of pressure on your body.
Our ears are responsible for much more than simply hearing sounds – the internal organs help us to balance and stay focussed. The cabin noise can drastically affect your ears, and it’s logical that louder volumes will take a greater toll on your fatigue and dizziness. Before chartering or purchasing an aircraft, ask us about the dBA levels within the cabin and we’ll be able to gauge whether or not your flights could be affected as a result.
All craft that we sell have been expertly checked and approved for use. We understand more than most that different models of aircraft will boast different levels of stability – and the lower this stability is, the more likely that you may be to suffer with air sickness. If you’re planning on using your plane frequently, then it may be advisable to choose an alternate model altogether – and one that features a higher level of stability when in flight.
