Apparently two pilots fainted during a flight and the question
is, "Could this have been related to electrosmog exposure?"
Many of us are aware that some flights have-and many more
flights will have-Wi-Fi connectivity. This is bad news for
those sensitive to this energy and for those not wanting to be
exposed unnecessary. However, if you are a pilot or co-pilot
and you become ill when you are exposed to this radiation it
could be disastrous!
I know of a high school student who fainted after standing just
a few feet from a Wi-Fi router in the hall of her school. She
had braces, which would make the radiation worse.
The cockpit of an airplane is already electromagnetically
polluted by low frequency (400 Hz) magnetic fields associated
with the internal wires (that typically run through conduits
behind both the pilot and co-pilot) and that are generated by
the heating of the windows (to keep them flexible); to the
radar; to the "coming soon" Wi-Fi radiation. That combined with
being in polluted airports, cosmic radiation, changes in
time-zones, job-stress, and sleep issues may produce the perfect
From a scientific perspective it would be useful to know how
health status of pilots has changed during the last few decades
and how much their exposure to radiation has changed during that
I was on a flight a few years ago from Las Vegas to Toronto (no
I wasn't gambling) and measured the cockpit of the airplane. I
was told that the industry had done measurements a few years
earlier but neither the industry nor the union released the
results to their pilots! In this case "no news" is not
necessarily "good news"!
There are certain professions that are responsible for the lives
of many and pilots and co-pilots are near the top of that list.
We need to take this situation seriously if we want to avert a
disaster. Even in the event that we are wrong about electrosmog
making pilots faint, practicing good electromagnetic hygiene on
board civilian and military aircrafts is a good idea.
