View Full Version : Summer Colds/Advice for flying with one?

2007-08-10, 08:17 AM
Does anyone else have one? I do, and it SUCKS!!! I just hope I feel better by Sunday since I'm heading to Santa Barbara. Last time I flew with a cold I couldn't hear a thing for 2 days :( Any advice?

Take something prior to the flight that will aim to clear your sinuses.

IF not, you will regret the sharp pain.

I would recommend: Airborne-the medicine or Alka Seltzer Cold I sometimes have those summer colds and usually the Alka Seltzer works fast and the cold goes away.

Back in the day, most of us tanker guys flew with a small bottle of Afrin in our flight bag. If you got too clogged up, a quick shot would help clear your sinuses until you got down and could get to the flight surgeon.
