  1. Hey Everyone, First time poster here with some general questions...first I should give you some background about myself and why I'm posting here. Just recently, I've gone looking for another job. I'm a college student studying film & video. I stumbled upon an awesome job which I'm currently being trained for. As you may have guessed, it's relating to helicopters. My job is riding along in a local news helicopter in PA, acting as the camera operator for the news station. Today was my first flight off the ground where I got some actual training filming things on the ground. I don't get motion sickness in cars/planes/busses/trains and I never physically got sick but I started feeling uncomfortable toward the end of the flight as we were landing. We were probably in the air for maybe 45 minutes...this was also my first helicopter flight ever, too. I started sweating a lot near the end...mind you I was wearing many layers (t-shirt, long sleeve button up shirt, and a winter jacket) all while in the chopper. Today in PA was relatively chilly, about 40 degrees for the high. I popped off the jacket and rolled up my sleeves which did help. The only other thing I could find that bothered me were my ears popping like crazy and some pressure on my head. I was looking down a lot using the camera controls and watching a monitor from my seat...if that would cause any of this. The pilot did some large swooping/bank turns which I'm sure contributed to my feelings. My question is...I ultimately got the job and will be going back for more training before becoming a part-time/back up camera operator. I understand it was my first flight ever....is there anything I could do to improve myself for my next flight? I've read ginger candy if I felt sick, which I really didn't. Maybe I'd leave behind the winter jacket for a lighter jacket next time. Any input/advice would be extremely helpful! Thanks in advance!
