Hello everyone! So I have yet to start at ATP due to delays and opportunities like my required internship; however, I plan on attending right after I graduate next year in the Summer of 2019.
Over the course of the last 9 months I attended multiple conventions and tours like FAPA, American Airlines GSW tour, etc. One thing that kept coming up in the conversations was health. While I know the best way to check your current state is to go to a doctor or medical examiner, I would like to ask for your recommendations on the following questions:
I heard from my pilot mentor that in order to save and take per diem, often regional pilots will pack their own lunch. First, is this true? And if so, during your regional days, what did you pack and eat usually on the road?
Online somewhere I heard the more fit you are = the more prone you are to airsickness/motion sickness. Of course, it depends on each person, but have you found this to be true with your colleagues and coworkers?
Is it true that once you have diabetes, cancer, etc. you are to lose your job without pay indefinitely?
What does your diet and exercise plan look like? (I am sure being stuck in a hotel or airport can wear down your health in the long-run)
I apologize if any of this was asked (just wanted to cover all these in one post) and if the post was long and a bore to read! Anyway thank you for reading and I look forward to your replies!
