Did Lack Of Sleep And Skipping Breakfast Cause Pilot To Pass Out At Controls?

There have been times when we may not have had enough sleep the previous evening or skipped breakfast before going to work in the morning. However, there are some professions where not getting the proper sleep, or reporting in an empty stomach, sapping you of energy, could have disastrous consequences.

The point was brought dramatically home recently when it was reported a trainee pilot in Australia had not slept the night before and had not had a proper breakfast, was unconscious for over half an hour, during a flight.

trainee pilot in Australia

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau, otherwise referred to as the ATSB, carried out a thorough investigation on the incident, involving a solo navigation flight departing from Parafield, near Adelaide to Port Augusta airport in South Australia.

The pilot had been flying for approximately 40 minutes, at a height of around 5,500ft, when he suffered a headache and turned on the autopilot. According to reports, just after relinquishing manual control of the aircraft, he suddenly fell unconscious. He was unable to receive calls from air traffic control, who tried many times to get in touch. In the end, the pilot had lost consciousness for a period of around 40 minutes.

Fortunately, the aircraft was seen by a passing plane flying over the sea close to Adelaide. The other plane noticed the pilot had woken up and provided his aircraft with an escort until it safely returned to Parafield, where he started from.

Afterwards, the investigation revealed the pilot had spoken the night before the flight about getting over a mild cold and having trouble sleeping.

It transpired that in the morning prior to taking off in Parafield, the pilot had not had any breakfast. The report also said that, during a stopover in Port Augusta, he had drunk some water, a bottle of Gatorade and ate a chocolate bar and that was all.

The incident has highlighted the risks of fatigue and lack of energy through missing food, leading the flight school training the pilot to make changes. The ATSB has stated that, before a flight, students have to say how long it has been since they last ate and what they had. They also must reveal how much they have slept in the past two days and if they have had a restless night prior to a flight.

There is no doubt being sleep deprived, or not eating properly, can affect how you do your job. It may not always have such potentially catastrophic consequences, but it can impact your concentration, drive and energy levels, affecting your performance. Therefore, it is important to get the best sleep possible to function at your full potential.

You can experience the most comfortable, refreshing sleep by choosing a bed or mattress set from Beds Glasgow. So, why don’t you come to our superstore and see what we have in stock? We can take the work out of getting a night’s sleep.

Have A Lie In And Watch A Movie At VIP Bedroom Cinema

Are you a film fan who likes nothing better than lounging around on the sofa, catching a flick with a bowl of popcorn? Do you perhaps even prefer the more relaxing option of watching a movie in bed, covered up with a blanket? You may like going to the movies and catch the latest releases, rather than staying in. However, how would you like to enjoy the best of both worlds and combine the two? Spend an evening at the cinema while tucked up in bed at the same time? It may seem like the stuff of dreams, but a new hi-tech movie house in Switzerland offer cinemagoers that very service.

So, if you want to lay down, snuggle up and watch the new Avengers movie, then head for the “VIP Bedroom Cinema”. Apart of the newly opened Pathé Switzerland complex, located in the town of Spreitenbach, close to the Swiss-German border. The concept cinema is exclusive to Switzerland, allowing movie fans to take in a feature while reclining in double beds with adjustable headrests, instead of sitting in a conventional seat. The cinema has eleven double beds available, where tickets are on sale for around 49 Swiss francs, the equivalent of £37.

The operators of the “VIP Bedroom Cinema” would like customers to know hygiene will be of paramount importance. They can be assured the sheets will always be stripped down and washed; the beds will be made between showings. Operators can also assure moviegoers they won’t have to worry about any fellow customers getting a little over excited and behaving inappropriately during the screening. It is just a place where you can enjoy a movie in luxury and comfort, while covered up in a duvet.

There are no such bedroom cinemas in Britain at the moment, but there are many luxurious cinemas where you can watch a movie on a sofa or a reclining seat, such as the Everyman cinema in Glasgow.

However, for now, if you want to take in a flick while resting on a bed, jump on a plane to Switzerland. Have a lie in while having a night out at the cinema.
