Prone to certain sicknesses?

I just want to know, how often do pilots get sick? you know, because of the lifestyle a pilot usually has.

Jose,

I think it depends on the individual but personally I don’t get sick anymore as a pilot than I had in my past careers. Just have to take care of yourself, rest and always wipe down the cockpit!

Adam

I don’t even bother to wipe down the cockpit and I almost never get sick.

Jose,

No more than I normally do.

You’re a brave man! There are some grungy pilots out there!
