REROUTE YOUR HEALTH

A pilot’s lifestyle and difficult work environment can often compromise health.
Find nutrition keys for a long career and confident Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Medical Certification.

HEALTH CHALLENGES OF AN AVIATOR’S LIFE

Every year 100s of pilots are grounded due to denied or deferred FAA Medical Certification. Not only can this be financially devastating, it exposes health issues that may cut short one's career and even one’s life if not addressed. Here are some of the challenges:

icon-1

EATING HABITS

Consuming a fiber-lacking diet, poor hydration or leading a sedentary lifestyle can result in high blood pressure, diabetes, and weight gain.

Lack of availability of antioxidants in the form of fruits and vegetables can increase oxidative stress impairing cognitive function, delaying reaction times and wreaking havoc on long-term eyesight and the cardiovascular system.

ENVIRONMENTAL

Crossing time zones and spending hours in the cockpit can disrupt sleep patterns causing gastrointestinal or digestive issues which decreases the body’s ability to operate efficiently and effectively. Also exposure to radiation can lead to advanced aging of the retina and organ systems.

As a registered dietitian, I have over 14 years of experience educating and ensuring my husband remains at his ideal health to function as an international pilot for his commercial airline employer.

Jill was a real pleasure to work with. I was so happy when she didn't flat out tell me I couldn't have a certain thing but gave me numbers to work towards, calories, fiber, protein, etc. She let me figure out how to reach those numbers mostly on my own with suggestions here and there on things. She also seemed to be very happy that I wasn't kicking and screaming all the way type!  LOL.
