I am a CFI with about 1200 hours of dual given, and I have never seen this problem before. He is about 20 years old and in good health, holding a 1st class medical. He has about 12 hours TT now and on about 50% of flights, he gets sick and we have to land. On three occasions, he has actually thrown up. It happened again this morning. He has tried eating before a flight, not eating before a flight. He has tried Dramamine with limited success. I asked him point blank after todays incident if he drinks heavily or does drugs the night before that might give him a hang over. He said he does not. He said he isn't nervous before the flights, so he doesn't think it is that. I told him I think he should pause training until he can consult with a doctor to try to get something figured out. Has anyone seen this before? Any suggestions?
